Commonwealth Games Village development reaches milestone

Commonwealth Games Village development reaches milestone

The Gold Coast is preparing for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Development is officially underway on the Commonwealth Games Village in the Gold Coast – a project which may boost job opportunities in the region.

Jann Stuckey, minister for tourism, major events and small business, said the village’s Parklands site has been declared a Priority Development Area (PDA) by the state government – a milestone that indicates construction is one step closer to kicking off.

She commented: “The Commonwealth Games Village will not only be a vital piece of infrastructure and home for 6,500 athletes and officials during the 2018 Commonwealth Games, but will contribute to the longer term economic development of the Gold Coast.”

The minister went on to say that the village will remain important to the Gold Coast following on from the Games, with it forming the residential and commercial part of a health and knowledge precinct earmarked for the city.

With preliminary infrastructure works expected to commence as soon as October, the project could generate hundreds of jobs in the region, as well potentially creating opportunities for apprenticeships in the Gold Coast.

Ms Stuckey went on to say that transport networks would be established to link the village to Games venues and facilities.
