Construction Updates

Construction of the $3.6B Queen's Wharf Brisbane development is underway.

Multiple contractors appointed to $3.6B Queen’s Wharf Brisbane integrated resort development.

Now, after more than three years on site, we are now starting to see the integrated resort development basement structure come up out of the ground and later this year (2020) we expect to see the four towers well above George Street.

ICC Gives Massive Hint About Adding Cricket To The Olympics

“Cricket's return to the Olympic Games is moving closer as the ICC is planning to do so using the T10 format. Over the past weeks, ICC has scheduled various meetings with the BCCI and the ECB to decide on a new calendar from 2023 onwards. While both the BCCI and the ECB have historically had reservations about the sport's involvement in the games, the ECB have reportedly raised the subject in their last meeting with the ICC's chief executive committee, and the idea was generally well-received.”

The biggest Olympics hurdle: Finding host cities

One night in September 2017, Paris’s Eiffel Tower lit up with a dazzling multicolored light show—all to celebrate the city winning its bid to host the 2024 Olympics.

Just as joyous, perhaps, was the relief that night, among members of the International Olympics Committee. For the IOC, finding cities willing—and able—to spend billions of dollars to host a two-week sporting bonanza, for the promise of prestige and glamor, has become an Olympian task all of itself.

That fact is even clearer now, as the Olympics season unfolds amid the worst pandemic in a century.

Surf-mad Aussies hungry for man-made rides

TYVlAOh.jpg

“In January last year, Urbnsurf opened the nation's first surf park 20km from the coast, near Melbourne's Tullamarine airport. It cost $43 million and is the size of the MCG.”

"There's only one major tourism asset on the Sunshine Coast, which is Australia Zoo, and we think this will be a really good complementary asset," he says.”

"We also think it's a really good Olympics asset, either as a training facility or a competition facility, with the state now finalising its bid (for the 2032 Games).”

"The Olympics are likely to be in August and that's not a great surf month in Australia."

“The major construction phase of the Brisbane International Cruise Terminal project is complete, following the wharf reaching practical completion in March. While there are still some finishing works underway around the site, the former greenfield site has been transformed into a world-class cruise facility.”

“While a timeline for the resumption of cruising remains uncertain, Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) took a long-term view and made a long-term commitment to Queensland when it invested $177 million in Brisbane’s new cruise terminal, working with our stakeholders and government to deliver a facility that will support the industry for decades to come.”

“A key piece of national tourism infrastructure, PBPL believes the new cruise terminal will play a key role in the industry’s recovery in Queensland when cruising can safely resume.”

A new online tool has been launched on Cross River Rail’s website so the public can follow the project’s mega tunnel boring machines in real time as they dig the Project’s twin tunnels beneath Brisbane.

Cross River Rail Delivery Authority CEO Graeme Newton said TBMs Else and Merle – both weighing in at 1350-tonnes – were excavating the project’s twin tunnels from Woolloongabba north towards Albert Street.

Meanwhile, two 115-tonne roadheaders were excavating the tunnels in the opposite direction from Woolloongabba towards Boggo Road.

Cross River Rail’s TBM Tracker can be found here.

Nine Queensland cities sign up to co-host 2032 Olympics

Nine Queensland cities have formally signed on to co-host the 2032 Olympic Games, which would make it the first multi-city Summer Games in history.

KG7duog.jpg

Under new rules to make hosting cheaper and more sustainable, “host” does not necessarily refer to a single city, but can also encompass multiple cities, regions and countries.

A shared multi-city bid enables regions to share the costs and benefits more broadly and avoid expensive and underused infrastructure.

The 2026 Winter Games will be the first to include multiple host cities – Milan and Cortina d’Ampezzo in Italy.

The Whitsundays has been flagged as a potential venue for the sailing event, while Townsville, Cairns and Toowoomba have been eyed for football preliminaries.

The remaining potential host cities were expected to be named soon.

Aussie athletes reveal 'scary' COVID toll

The financial, mental and physical scars of the COVID-19 pandemic on Australia's athletes have been laid bare in a new report and could linger long after the Tokyo Olympics.

The Australian Sports Foundation report, released on Tuesday and based on an anonymous survey, found athletes' ability to perform on the national and international stage has worsened amid the global health crisis.

"This has the potential to negatively impact both community engagement and participation and the future success of our national, Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth Games teams in the longer term," it said.

"(It is) a particular concern given the likelihood of Australia hosting the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games."

‘We could lose a generation of athletes’: Olympians struggle on less than minimum wage

“Elite Australian athletes are giving up on their dreams as their finances collapse in a COVID-hit economy - and that could leave the country red-faced if Brisbane succeeds in winning the right to host the 2032 Olympic Games, athlete advocates have warned.”

 

“When people hear the words ‘elite athlete’ they very often just think of the big stars from the footy codes that they see on the back pages of the papers and on television, ” said Bond, a dual gold medallist and world champion.

“They are well paid, but the reality is very different for most athletes in Olympic and Paralympic sports. They are struggling and many are on the verge of giving up because of the financial pressure. We have Olympic and Paralympic athletes earning less than the minimum wage as they try to combine work with their sporting career.”

“And that could have a flow-on effect if the numbers drop and we lose a generation of elite athletes. It could harm Australia’s performance at the Olympics if Brisbane gets the Games.”

AOC asks for extra $314m to boost medal tally

wqJ4NHk.jpg

AOC CEO Matt Carroll

The Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) wants the federal government to spend an extra $314 million over the next four years to boost an Olympic performance medal tally that has only declined since Sydney 2000.

The request – for an extra 65 per cent on the $482 million funding already planned for high-performance sport – comes less than two months before the delayed Tokyo Olympic Games, and identifies a 10-year “runway” for investment in athletes before the 2032 Olympic Games which Brisbane is in the box seat to host.

Sydney lacks identity, according to urban planner

By Jarrod Reedie   21 May 2021

Payne believes the city has struggled to maintain its status as Australia’s premium city for some time, and says Brisbane being named as the preferred city to host the 2032 Olympic Games has exacerbated this.
