City to expand local sporting precincts

Woolloongabba sports enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice following the latest decision by Brisbane City Council to expand sporting facilities in surrounding suburbs.

Lord Mayor, Councillor Graham Quirk has announced a $7 million project to expand the sporting precinct located at Telegraph Road, Fitzgibbon which is a world-class sporting facility. The work will include four additional courts for the district-grade netball competitions plus lighting, a carpark for more than 80 vehicles, new recreational greenspace and a new roundabout.

As a result, Councillor Quirk said more lifestyle and leisure opportunities will be provided and there will be more to do and see in Brisbane, adding:

“Council is committed to creating a sporting hub at Fitzgibbon and in the past four years has already delivered a new aquatic centre, the city’s first BMX track and a skate plaza.”

In addition to the netball precinct at Fitzgibbon, Council will also be delivering a number of other major sporting facilities. Graphic design is often employed to help create plans for projects like this.

Among the plans are two sports parks to be located at Windsor and Rocklea, a golf course which is to be established at Cannon Hill, a synthetic field for hockey players is destined for Chermside while Mitchelton is the location of a new synthetic soccer field.

Extension work to the sports park at Fitzgibbon is expected to kick off in mid-2019 and be completed in 2020.
