The Tasmanian government insists a roofed stadium at Macquarie Point can, and will, be built amidst growing geo-technical, height and engineering concerns. 

On Saturday, Premier Jeremy Rockliff dismissed suggestions that a 23,000-seat, roofed stadium could not be built on the site at a price tag of $715 million, declaring his government had “factored in” potentially problematic site conditions, and had “contingency” for build and cost overruns “should they be required.”
