$662 Million Business Case For Riverbank Arena Has Been Revealed
Generating thousands of jobs
More than a year after it was announced, the business case for a new $662 million Riverbank Arena has been revealed.
The 15,000 seat stadium would generate thousands of jobs and around $70 million in economic activity annually. It would bring in more than 800,000 visitors a year.
Letters of support came in from key figures in tennis, netball, conventions and even promoters like Michael Chugg and the late Michael Gudinski.
It includes more than 500 on-site parking spaces with construction not due to start until 2025.
However, Labor has vowed to dump the arena if elected, and will divert money into health.
