Brisbane Live – another step closer
11 May 2018
Queensland’s vision of a new state-of-the-art entertainment precinct built over the Roma Street rail line – ‘Brisbane Live’ – is a step closer with the commissioning of a formal business case.
Brisbane Live is a proposal for a 17,000-seat world class entertainment arena, similar to the LA Live complex, which would become Queensland’s premier entertainment venue hosting international live acts and world class sporting events.
The Cross River Rail Delivery Authority will develop the business case with Building Queensland as part of the master planning work for the Roma Street precinct.
The proposal promises to deliver decades of economic and employment opportunities to what is an underutilised part of Brisbane.
Brisbane Live would also ensure Queensland keeps pace with other Australian and global competitors for wold-class events and help boost our tourism sector.
The construction of the Cross River Rail project means precincts like Roma Street will be significantly revitalised, and Brisbane will continue to evolve as a world-class city with a modern integrated public transport system.
