Qld: ABC moves to South Bank

The ABC in Brisbane is building a new home at South Bank .. following a cluster of
cancer cases at its old headquarters.

Staff members were moved out of the Toowong premises two years ago .. after it was
discovered it had an incidence rate of breast cancer six times higher than average.

Plans to build at Newstead were dumped after the national broadcaster claimed the land
was contaminated.

ABC managing director MARK SCOTT says a new four-storey .. environmentally responsible
and sustainable building will be built around the Queensland Conservatorium .. on the
corner of Grey and Russell streets .. by early 2012.
