The new Airport Line is ready for take-off, and we’re ready to celebrate!
Concrete has been the big ticket item in the past month with slab pours taking place left, right and centre. A lot of construction work has become more visible now with above-ground structures starting to take shape across several of the sites.
Tunnel boring machines (TBMs) are large machines that excavate below the ground surface, while simultaneously installing concrete lining units to build a tunnel.
It has been a busy start to 2019, with works continuing across nine construction sites, our stations starting to take shape, segment production reaching 91 per cent and the tunnel boring machines (TBMs) beginning their ascent towards Redcliffe Station.
Tunnel boring machine (TBM) Grace has been very busy in 2018 reaching the halfway mark (3571m) of her underground journey in November, and clearing the airside environment in December.
The Forrestfield-Airport Link is continuing to move forward, with significant progress made on the project and rectification measures identified for a damaged 26 metre section of one tunnel.
