Brisbane’s new runway
After years of initial planning and eight years of construction the new Brisbane Airport runway is officially finished and will open on Sunday 12 July 2020. The project was delivered ahead of schedule and on budget. It’s great to see this project at practical completion after being involved, in the early stages, on behalf of the Australian Government, as the Airport Environment Officer specifically appointed to work alongside the Brisbane Airport AEO and, in liaison with, the Brisbane Airport Cooperation (BAC), to review (for approval) the sets of construction environmental management plans for the three main phases of construction. Big teams, over a period of years, deliver these big projects. We are very proud to have been a part of it, albeit in a small and usually forgotten role. Congratulations to all those involved.
