Brisbane massive airport link almost there

One of the longest and largest infrastructure projects ever built in Australia is just a few months away from completon.

Acting Premier Andrew Fraser has confirmed that the Airport Link project, including construction of the Northern Busway, Windsor to Kedron, remained on schedule for completon by 30 June 2012.

“This extremely complex project is now more than 95 per cent complete with 25 million hours worked since constructon began in late 2008,” Mr Fraser said.

Since November 2008 the project has spent $3.75 billion building the Airport Link, the Northern Busway (Windsor to Kedron) and the Airport Roundabout Upgraded. It has also created 4,500 jobs at peak with more than 3,300 people still employed. The project involved 15 kilometres of bored and lined tunnel and ramps; 25 bridges and overall required more than 800,000 m³ of poured concrete. Apart from the new build, the project also required upgrading of hundreds of kilometres of water, power and sewer services

Thiess John Holland contractors’ Project Director Gordon Ralph said thousands of men and women had worked incredibly hard over the past three years and 3,300 people were still working to complete the massive project by June 30.

Airport Link, which is being designed and constructed by Thiess John Holland, along with the Northern Busway (Windsor to Kedron) and the Airport Roundabout Upgrade, is part of a massive $4.8 billion infrastructure investment on Brisbane’s northside.

Thirteen ki lometres of new and upgraded cycle and pathways are also being delivered as part of the project, and more than three hectares of new parkland will be provided to the community at completon [CWMAGS]
