Townsville's bar and nightclub owners are welcoming news that 1am lockouts have been axed in an 11th hour decision.

The last minute change comes just one week prior to the proposed law change date.  

There's already been a drop in alcohol fueled violence on Flinders Street since 3am Last Drink laws came into effect in July 2016 according to the local Safe Night Out Board.

There's still changes on the way though...new ID scanners will roll out by the middle of 2017 keeping banned trouble makers from bar hopping.
