Work to commence on $158M Brisbane mega cruise ship terminal

The Port of Brisbane has announced the key contractors that will complete the Brisbane International Cruise Terminal, reports yourneighbourhood.com.au.

 

Brady Marine and Civil have been awarded the wharf construction element, and Hindmarash will complete the terminal building and civil works of the $158 million project. Works for the project will commence in April.

 

Cameron Dick, Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning said the terminal, will be a great economic driver for both Brisbane and Queensland.

 

“It is expected to contribute $1.3 billion in net expenditure into the Brisbane economy alone over the coming two decades. An estimated 245 jobs will be supported during each year of construction, while an additional 49 jobs will be supported each year over the next 20 years,” said Mr Dick.

 

The terminal itself will be a two level structure spanning 9,300 square metres with two air bridges for passenger movements, and a 200m long wharf. Parking will be available for buses and cars.  

 

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the terminal, which will be located on the north side of the Brisbane River, is set to open in 2020.

 

“Cruising is one of tourism’s great growth stories, for both international and domestic markets.”



“A dedicated, purpose-built cruise ship terminal will boost our international reputation as a global tourism destination of choice.



“It will serve as a catalyst to supercharge growth in our tourism sector and related industries and generate jobs now and into the future,” said Mrs Palaszczuk.

 

Tourism Minister Kate Jones said the project is a key element in South East Queensland’s infrastructure.

 

“It will bring an increased number of cruise ships and more tourists to the state,” Ms Jones said.



“It will also safeguard the existing 1,250 jobs related to the cruise industry in Brisbane and add 49 operational jobs on average each year over the next 20 years as the industry grows,” said Ms Jones.
