Rocky V Townsville: Final FIFO hub showdown date set
THE Adani decision Rockhampton is hanging on is expected to be made next month.
That's when the mining giant is forecast to announce whether Rockhampton or Townsville will be awarded its fly-in fly-out hub.
News Corp Australia, publishers of The Morning Bulletin, is reporting the crucial decision is just four to six weeks away.
The development comes on a key day for the company's Carmichael Mine project.
Rockhampton mayor Margaret Strelow today joined a host of community leaders at the opening of Adani's North Queensland headquarters in Townsville.
Cr Strelow has been in ongoing discussions with Adani regarding the region's FIFO bid.
Rockhampton Regional Council has made a bold play to build a $20m airport as part of a deal to entice Adani.
The region is still reeling from the potential loss of 300 jobs as Aurizon looks to shut down its Rockhampton workshops and makes changes across its Central Queensland operation.
