Commonwealth Games preparations gear up

The Gold Coast is preparing for the Commonwealth Games.

Preparations for the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games are in full swing, with the state government recently announcing the establishment of a new body to oversee several projects for the event.

Deputy premier Jeff Seeney said the Commonwealth Games Infrastructure Authority will help plan, develop and deliver “world-class” facilities for the major sporting competition.

Several projects are earmarked for the Gold Coast as it gears up for the Games, such as the multimillion-dollar village – a development that could provide opportunities for apprenticeships in Queensland.

Mr Seeney commented: “The Games Village will be delivered through Economic Development Queensland and is a vital piece of infrastructure and home for 6,500 athletes and officials during the Games.

“The Commonwealth Games Village will include housing, retail space, parks and a town square and will fast track development of the health and knowledge precinct.”

Assistant minister for planning reform Rob Molhoek said projects specific to the Commonwealth Games will generate employment and contract opportunities for both local individuals and businesses in the region.

Chairman of the Commonwealth Games Corporation Nigel Chamier has also been appointed as chair of the new infrastructure authority – a role that he says he is honoured to be given.
