Brisbane Airport Link opens to traffic

Claimed to be Australia’s largest transport infrastructure project the Brisbane Airport Link officially opened to traffic last week.

An Arup and Parsons Brinckerhoff partnership – the PBA joint venture – had 1,700 people working on the design for the AirportlinkM7 over six years.

The Airport Link, Northern Busway (Windsor to Kedron) and Airport Roundabout Upgrade projects together form an extensive $5.6bn (£3.75bn) transport project comprising a toll road and dedicated busway route, together involving almost 12km of tunnel, 25 connection bridges and a major upgrade of the existing motorway interchange.

The final major project milestone occurred on 24 July, a few moments before midnight with traffic being directed into the tunnels at 11:57pm.
