The roads, as Deputy Premier and State Development Minister Steven Miles said, are adjacent to the Athlete’s Village site and would assist vehicle movements around the precinct during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The works, which cost around $18 million, includes road, stormwater and utilities upgrades, three new roads, more separated cycleways and subtropical urban landscaping at the eastern end of Northshore.

“Importantly, these works are creating new land supply that will shortly come to the market and is expected to generate over $500 million of private sector investment and support over 1600 construction jobs,” Mr Miles said.

Mr Miles added that the accelerated delivery of supporting infrastructure will be vital to support the development of the Village that will ultimately host more than 10,000 athletes and team officials for the Olympic Games and more than 5000 for the Paralympics.

“Opening up more riverfront that has been closed to the public for over 100 years due to port operations, will support local businesses including Eat Street Northshore,” he said.
