Olympics - Brisbane edges closer to securing 2032 Games

While debate has raged over whether the Tokyo Olympics should go ahead this year, the Australian city of Brisbane has been moving closer to securing the hosting rights for the 2032 Summer Games - a deal that could be sealed as early as July.

Sport science fast-tracked with QUT, AIS and QAS strategic partnership

Support for elite athletes to reach their peak performance has been given a boost with a new partnership involving QUT, the Australian Institute of Sport and the Queensland Academy of Sport.

QUT’s Dr Paul Wu, from the Centre for Data Science, will be employed as an Industry Research Fellow working with a team including three PhD students.

“It is particularly thrilling to be a part of a project like this as we keenly wait to hear whether Brisbane gets the final approval to host the 2032 Olympics.”

Dr Wu said a key part of the analysis would be to try to determine “what it takes to win”.

i would think so as well - i also suspect we might see some quickly on the end of the brisbane sign at southbank - perhaps the first place we might see them

Yes, you’re right the Brisbane sign by the river that would be a great location.

Our colourful version of the Hollywood sign by the Brisbane River and a very recognisable symbol of the soon-to-be Olympic City, we hope.

It would look great to have the big Olympic rings complementing it.

SEQ is a meaningless initialism outside of Australia. Either of Brisbane 2032 or Queensland 2032 would be fine, depending on whether you want to go the traditional route or emphasis the regional nature of these Games.

As for the logo, it's normally the case that it's unveiled 5 years prior to the Games, in the non-Olympic year before the preceding Games. I guess from the IOC's point of view it means they've not got a plethora of logos to be dealing with at any one time - there will only ever be a maximum of three 'in the wild' as it were. So that would put Brisbane on schedule for a 2027 unveiling.

LA28 has bucked this trend, however. So I guess we'll see if that was an anomaly of the start of a more relaxed attitude to the timing of logo launches from the IOC.

That’s true.  Too many logos in the market too early at a particular moment in time might be of concern to the IOC, perhaps diluting the Olympic brand / Host City marketing efforts as it were.

Building price rises pose a dilemma for Brisbane

“The challenge for Brisbane, likely to see a boost in demand for new facilities if it is confirmed as host of the 2032 Olympic Games, is that the city’s pool of contractors has shrunk as larger builders have moved resources south to tap the booming markets of Sydney and Melbourne, where the pipeline of projects was more predictable, Mr Mackey said.”

Protesters demand 3600-unit wetlands project be sent back to drawing board

“The Queensland government should call in the controversial Toondah Harbour proposal – to build 3600 units on internationally recognised wetlands at Cleveland – because it now varies considerably from the way it was first explained to the Redland community, critics say.”

“The group said the project would provide 1000 construction jobs and accommodation for 4000 people when it was complete in 10 years.  It said it would provide a more contemporary destination to a region that could host several events during the 2032 Olympic Games, if Queensland’s bid was successful.”

“For Brisbane and Queensland, the bell for the last lap has rung”

John Coates, AOC President:

“If the IOC is happy with the plans, and all the indications so far are overwhelmingly positive after the federal and state governments provided the IOC with assurances they were backing the bid, then the full IOC membership could be asked to vote on whether to award the Games to the Sunshine State as soon as July.”

“The reality is this: For Brisbane and Queensland, the bell for the last lap has rung,” Coates said.”

“We have final hurdles to clear before the tape is breasted.”

”But with all levels of Government, the AOC and Paralympics Australia, working in genuine partnership, as members of the OCLG, Brisbane 2032 runs with confidence and cohesion – as it should, and as it must.”

13 May, 2021 from the International Olympic Commitee:

FUTURE HOST COMMISSION CONTINUES TARGETED DIALOGUE WITH BRISBANE 2032 AND THE AUSTRALIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE

THE FUTURE HOST COMMISSION OF THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE (IOC) IS CONTINUING ITS DETAILED DISCUSSIONS WITH THE BRISBANE 2032 COMMITTEE AND THE AUSTRALIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE (AOC) ABOUT THEIR POTENTIAL TO HOST THE GAMES OF THE XXXV OLYMPIAD IN THE YEAR 2032. BRISBANE 2032 HAS PROVIDED AN ‘INITIAL SUBMISSION’ IN RESPONSE TO THE IOC’S FUTURE HOST QUESTIONNAIRE, TO DESCRIBE ITS VISION, CONCEPT AND LEGACY PLANS FOR THE OLYMPIC AND PARALYMPIC GAMES.

This week, a remote meeting was held over three days, during which Brisbane 2032, the Australian Olympic Committee and Paralympics Australia were supported to finalise their plans, in order to make a ‘Final Submission’ to the Future Host Questionnaire in the coming weeks. The three levels of government supporting the project took part in the meetings, with presentations from leading political figures including The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk MP, Premier of the State of Queensland, and The Right Honourable Lord Mayor of Brisbane, Councillor Adrian Schrinner, with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison joining by video message.

IOC Member Kristin Kloster Aasen, chair of the Future Host Commission for the Games of the Olympiad, said: “Brisbane 2032 has demonstrated its commitment to the great spirit of partnership of the new way of electing Olympic hosts. It is clear that the proposal has a strong momentum from across the whole community.

“Under the new approach to host elections, the Olympic Games adapt to the needs of the people living in the host region, rather than expecting the region to adapt to the Games. Brisbane 2032 has clearly been designed to complement long-term development plans for Brisbane and Queensland.”

The remote assessment, including a virtual visit to all locations on the venue masterplan, will contribute to reducing costs for the Preferred Host.

The reduction of cost and complexity of the Games is an important element of Olympic Agenda 2020 and its New Norm.

In advance of the meeting, Brisbane 2032 supplied footage of proposed competition venues, Olympic Villages, the International Broadcast Centre, the Main Press Centre and the Ceremony Stadium, plus the surrounding areas.

Brisbane 2032 is the first ‘Preferred Host’ under the new approach to electing Olympic hosts, intended to make the election process more efficient and sustainable for potential hosts, less expensive, and with fewer risks. Brisbane 2032 would make use of over 80% existing or temporary venues. The other venues are planned irrespective of the Games, to serve the long-term needs of the population of Queensland, the fastest-growing state in Australia. Brisbane 2032 has support from over 64% of the population of Queensland and Australia.

In recent weeks the Future Host Commission has organised an intensive schedule of workshops to assist Brisbane 2032 to develop strong plans for legacy, sustainability, economics of the games, games technology and legal requirements. As part of the new approach to electing hosts, the IOC provides these services at its own cost. Expenses for potential hosts have reduced drastically following the reforms of the process.

The IOC Executive Board (EB) opened a Targeted Dialogue with Brisbane 2032 as Preferred Host in February, following a recommendation by the Future Host Commission.

The Commission will review Brisbane 2032’s Final Submission before making a report to the EB, which can decide to recommend the project for election by the Session as an Olympic host.

The IOC announced that a three-day session was held with the prospective Brisbane 2032 organizers, the Australian National Olympic Committee and representatives of several levels of the Australian government.

A “final submission” by Brisbane is expected in the “coming weeks.” Norwegian IOC member Kristin Kloster Aasen, Chair of the Future Host Commission for the Games of the Olympiad, said:

“Under the new approach to host elections, the Olympic Games adapt to the needs of the people living in the host region, rather than expecting the region to adapt to the Games.

Queensland Olympic Legacy: High Speed Rail

May 17, 2021

 

QYYHQw5.jpg

 

While the Queensland 2032 Olympic bid will not officially be announced until July this year by the International Olympic Committee, it is now seen by many as incontestable given both Australia’s track record with hosting successful events and Brisbane’s very advanced ‘low-cost format’ bid.

The Olympic Games is an opportunity of a lifetime to give South East Queensland an injection of sustainable transport infrastructure that will last us a lifetime.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the current population of the South East Queensland urban area is 3.8 million. Over the next 20 years, an additional 2 million people are expected to call SEQ home, bringing our total population to around 5.8 million people.

If we continue to put mass transit second and roads first, we will end up with a Sydney-style infrastructure catch up situation.

e4gZYWg.jpg

High speed rail or fast rail would fundamentally change the dynamic of the entire region. People could realistically live on the Gold Coast and commute into Brisbane or vice versa at a fraction of the time it use to take to travel.

Instantly, upon opening of the line, our region would become one large accessible metropolitan area unlike anything in Australia, but actually fairly common throughout some Asian and European metro areas. The system would also work for rural Queensland, opening up new affordable transit communities whilst giving existing ones new leases on life.

We are a lifestyle region as much as a growing business and industry hub, we cannot keep saying we don’t have the population, finances or political will for rail infrastructure that would benefit millions, because we do. Queensland is a very rich state which has always looked forward, but we need to be smart with how we spend these Olympic infrastructure dollars that we are about to receive.

Part 2 of 5

Queensland Olympic Legacy: High Speed Rail

By Brisbane Development       May 17, 2021

 

Why build sustainable infrastructure?

Queenslanders shouldn’t see the Olympics as two weeks of sport, we should see it as a way to pave future prosperity through sustainable infrastructure.

Unfortunately, upgrading road infrastructure connecting large population centres like Brisbane and the Gold and Sunshine Coasts creates induced demand, which basically means you are creating a favourable environment for cars and therefore additional traffic will join the road.

aZ2oX6n.jpg

Eventually, no matter how many lanes you put on a highway, it will end up where we started, gridlocked. Good examples of this can be seen all over American cities which continually expand freeways every ten years and don’t invest in mass transit. Arterial roads are vital for freight and the trades, so it is important that we reduce congestion which also costs the economy billions each year.

The alternative is very clear and is used throughout Europe and Asia. High speed rail and fast rail not only moves large amounts of people around quickly, but also long distances are no longer a problem. More train services can be added to scale up capacity and this helps to save space on existing roads for essential services.

PrjU0Sf.jpg

Commencing later this year, the 45-kilometre Coomera Connector freeway project is set to be built between Loganholme and Nerang, effectively half duplicating the M1 motorway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. This project has a cost of $1.53 billion and is being jointly funded 50:50 by the State and Federal Governments.

Undoubtedly, this will help fast growing communities specifically around Coomera, Pimpama and Ormeau. These are regions that are destined to accomodate a vast amount of Queenslanders into the future. Investment in our inter-city rail system however, is dramatically lagging behind. These communities ultimately only have one choice at the moment, and that is to drive and it will only get worse without a fast rail solution.
