Gold Coastís Carrara Stadium is on schedule for completion in May 2011. Meanwhile, 20% of the stadiumís power needs will be generated by solar panels.

Carrara Stadium is on time and on budget with the AFLís newest club, the Gold Coast Suns, set to play their first game at the venue under lights on Saturday 28th May 2011 (Round 10).

Constructed by Queensland construction firm, Watpac, the 25,000-seat stadium is well and truly taking shape. Roof trusses and shade fabric have been installed throughout the east with progress on the west well advanced. The southern stand bowl is almost complete with only four bays of the upper tier remaining.

It was also announced this week that 20 per cent of the Carrara Stadium's energy needs would be provided by solar panels around the inner edge of the roof. The installation of solar panelling is scheduled to begin next week.

''The inclusion of the solar panelling will generate around 275,000kW hours of energy per annum,'' said Queensland Sports Minister Phil Reeves.

''This is the equivalent to powering more than 250 homes in Queensland.''

The total redevelopment of Carrara has seen everything from the old stadium flattened with the only exception the six light towers. As well as being home of the new Gold Coast Suns Football Club, the venue is also expected to play host to Cricket fixtures, while itís also central to the Gold Coastís 2018 Commonwealth Games bid.
