How Brisbane's North Quay is shaping up to be a key part of the CBD

  How Brisbane's North Quay is shaping up to be a key part of the CBD With multi-billion-dollar developments expected to transform Brisbane's city waterfront, the focus is now turning to an often-overlooked section of the CBD. The North Quay precinct, spanning a few blocks between the river, Milton and Roma Street, rubs shoulders with the planned Cross River Rail's Roma Street Station.Traditionally linked with the legal profession, and the odd backpacker hotel at its western end, the precinct is now being eyed for a host of new developments — multiple high-end commercial towers, a possible university campus, a stadium, and the train station as a new 'Grand Central'.

Roma's Italy international Nicolo Zaniolo has returned to individual training six months after rupturing knee ligaments for a second time.

"Restart. How I missed you," the 21-year-old midfielder wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday alongside a photo of himself training.

Zaniolo was sidelined for seven months in the first half of 2020 after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

He then picked up an identical injury to his left knee playing for Italy against the Netherlands in the Nations League last September.

He was operated on in Austria.

Zaniolo hopes to recover to play with Italy in the European Championship from June 11-July 11 with the opening match against Turkey in Rome.

The midfielder has scored two goals in seven games for Italy.
