From the Future Commission’s Report:

  • Irrespective of the Games, the Queensland Government has guaranteed funding for the Gabba upgrade/construction,
  • the upgrade works are aligned with the Cross River Rail which will need to be completed before construction starts in 2026,
  • upgrade works estimated to occur 2026-2030.

Would like to see Brisbane host the 2029 World University Games to prepare. Also the 2031 World Athletics Championships and 2031 FINA World Champs 

Yes would be great.  There were media reports a couple of months ago of Cairns bidding for the Athletics World Championships which raised a few eyebrows.  The  media reports stating that Barlow Park with temporary grandstands would be used.

The Gabba upgrade 2026-2030 is probably unlikely  to be completed in and tested time for the World Champs.

The FINA World Swimming Championships could easily be held at the Gold Coast Aquatics Centre with the same set-up as the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

I thought of this back when the IOC feasibility study was released. It's not like there'll be a heap of available space adjacent to the arena to put a second temporary pool.

Perhaps there’s enough space in a  ‘backstage’ area or underground carpark (?)

Temporary ‘Drop-in‘ Pool Technology at Brisbane Arena

 

Brisbane 2032 Olympics organisers are expected to use in the new Brisbane Arena venue the same type of drop-in temporary pool technology used successfully at the 2007 FINA World Swimming Championships at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

 

“THE FINA SKYPOOLS AT ROD LAVER ARENA - 2007”

A "suspended" 50-metre, 10-lane, Olympic-size swimming pool was built inside Rod Laver Arena for the 2007 World Swimming Championships.

■ The first five rows of seats in the arena were covered by decking and not used.

■ The front row of spectators were close to water level.

■ The competition pool was made from 350 galvanised steel panels. The pool was lined with rubber.

■ A warm-up pool was built on top of the indoor practice courts. The pools contained 6 million litres of water, which were recycled after the event.

■ The pools are the first temporary pools to be installed in an existing sports stadium in the southern hemisphere. Both were dismantled and removed after the championships.

■ Specially developed overflow channels kept the water surface flat for faster swimming.

■ No concreting or bolts were used and the pools are considered to be like a giant Meccano set.

■ Because the pools are "suspended" the bottom does not sit on the tennis court surface.

■ They were built in Barcelona and were shipped to Melbourne as prefabricated pieces.

■ They were assembled from February 9  to March 5, 2007

 

Here is the original story:

This will mark the first time a temporary competition swimming pool has been installed in an existing stadium in the southern hemisphere. Rod Laver is the home of tennis, of course: the Australian Open. And big rock concerts. Classical music concerts. Motorcycle supercross. And now swimming.

this would be my guess, given the fact that transport to the games will be by public transport for 99% of the people there (probably only people being driven to the door would be VIP's) there would be room in a carpark / loading dock

How Brisbane Olympics 2032 will showcase city and regions

The venues revealed in the 2032 Games proposal have been carefully selected to show off the best of Brisbane and regional Queensland, while keeping costs down.

“Queensland is renowned for its unique and spectacular locations and is one of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations,” the report that helped win over the IOC executive board says.

Key to the plan is hosting outdoor sports that will “showcase the diverse natural environment” to an international television and online audience.

They include beach volleyball at “spectacular Broadbeach”, triathlon staged against the backdrop of the Gold Coast city skyline and beaches, road cycling marathon, race walks and kiteboarding at the “picturesque Alexandra Headland coastal strip and Sunshine Coast hinterland” and equestrian competition staged in the heart of central Brisbane, archery and basketball 3x3 on the banks of the Brisbane River against the city backdrop.

Push for more  for more public transport linking CBD and Airport before the Olympics

A CityGlider airport bus service plus an extension of the Brisbane Metro mega-bus network could connect the city to the airport before the 2032 Olympic Games.

The Brisbane Metro extension forms part of the Brisbane Airport Corporation’s 2020 Master Plan, and the BAC has also called for a CityGlider high-frequency bus service to the airport.

Olympics win will turn on City Deal funding: Brisbane lord mayor

If Brisbane wins the right to host the 2032 Olympic Games next month, billions will start to flow in an accelerated timetable involving all levels of government, lord mayor Adrian Schrinner said as he prepared to hand down his council budget.

The money is needed to improve infrastructure, upgrade venues and improve transport links in south-east Queensland before the Olympics.

Major infrastructure works can take five years to take shape after decisions are made.

The way the funding flows will be guided in part by the complex South East Queensland City Deal, the same type of funding deal that allowed Townsville to acquire a new football stadium and city facilities.

I haven't followed the bidding process this closely before. Who votes exactly? Is it the members listed here? Because there's no one from Indonesia.

What competitions would it host though? Venues have already been announced

You’re right that it won’t be able to host any aquatics competition as venues have already been announced and it’s a bit of wishful thinking on their part.

But what Bundaberg can chase is to host an Olympic training camp for one or more of the visiting national squads which can be big bucks hiring out it’s entire pool.

Often, a country’s swimming or water polo or artistic swimming squad will arrive in the Host country early to adjust to the local climate conditions, time zone, etc while trainig and ‘tapering’ for the Games.

The larger the team the better with all the athletes and officials. A big squad can be very lucrative to a town’s economy, hotels restaurants, transport, etc ahead of the Games before that Team moves into the Olympic Village.
