Construction of interim facilities at Glebe Island begins

News this week: Construction of the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island has begun. According to Infrastructure NSW (INSW), a 7,000 cubic metre concrete slab, which will serve as the foundation of the 25,000 m2 venue, will be ready next month.

Glebe Island will host Sydney’s largest exhibitions from February 2014 until the end of 2016 when the new facilities become available at Darling Harbour. The Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island will sit adjacent to the Anzac Bridge at Rozelle in Sydney’s inner-west area.

Andrew Stoner, deputy premier of NSW, said, “Transport will include a quick ferry ride from Darling Harbour and buses from Central Station as well as a car parking on site, a taxi stand and drop off zones. The NSW Government is proud to support the exhibition and events industry by providing this interim facility during the three year construction of the new world-class International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney and ICC Exhibition at Darling Harbour.”
