WHY BRISBANE? – BRISBANE AIRPORT REDEVELOPMENT
Welcome to the third blog in our series of WHY BRISBANE
Australia’s biggest aviation project will provide Brisbane with the best runway system in the country. This environmentally sound and award winning project will transform the existing marshland, positioned 2 kilometers west of the existing runway into a 3.3 kilometer and 60 meter wide landing strip with 12 kilometers of taxiway. The land has been reclaimed by pumping 11 million cubic meters of sand onto this 360 hectare site. The site has been manicured for four years using 330,000 wick drains that have funneled all excess water to the surface allowing the weight of the sand to create a sound base for the construction of the airfield. The next phase will see the commencement of the pavement, lighting, navigation aids and landscaping. Once complete, Brisbane airport will have the same capacity as Hong Kong and Singapore airports. The project has created 2700 construction jobs and will be completed in 2020 at a total investment of $1.35 billion.
