The 1000 m chute has been moved west, and comes onto the course proper at a sharper angle. This means a greater part of the race is run on a bend. The home turn has been extended to the east a tad, thereby lengthening the straight.
Re-configuring the 1000m start allows the land area on the Nudgee Rd-Mein St corner to be better utilised. Current thoughts are for a licensed club, including Hamilton Bowls Club.
In the back straight, the 1600 m start will be in the north-west corner, with a straight run then to the 1000 m turn. The 1400m start will be on the same straight run.
