Brisbane a World City in 3…2…1!

Big infrastructure projects in the pipeline are set to give Brisbane a step-up to the world stage. 

 

Brisbanetimes.com.au has reported that by 2026, over $17 billion worth of new infrastructure is expected to be delivered to the city, which will include over 13 hectare of open space across five precincts, plus additional space that will be added as part of the $5.4 billion Cross River Rail project. 

 

The latest news from these huge Brisbane projects includes the appointment of contractors for works of the $3.8 billion Queens Wharf Development and the $5.4 billion Cross River Rail, and commencement of construction for the new $158 million International Cruise Terminal.

 

Queens Wharf

In the latest announcement, Multiplex has been awarded the major building works contract for the $3.8 billion Queens Wharf Development. The contract still requires finalisation and State Government approval. The paperwork is set to be completed quickly, as initial works and shell of the integrated resort and ‘Sky Deck,’ which will sit 100m above street level, are due to commence in the coming months.  

 

The contract is a huge win for the company, which will be responsible for approximately 370,000 sqm of floor area and 105,000sqm of glazed façade.

 

The first stages of the integrated resort development are expected to be completed in late 2022. 

 

International Cruise Terminal

Construction has officially commenced on Brisbane’s new $158 million International Cruise Terminal. The new terminal will ensure larger, and greater numbers of ships can dock in Brisbane. This will provide a great economic boost to the City as the industry is estimated to be worth more than a billion dollars in the next few years.

Cross River Rail

Earlier this month, the State Government announced the companies that were awarded contracts to build the $5.4 billion Cross River Rail Project. The PULSE consortium will be responsible Tunnel, Stations and Development (TSD), UNITY Alliance will be responsible for the Rail, Integration and Systems (RIS), and Hitachi Rail STS will be responsible for the European Train Control System (ETCS). 

 

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the Cross River Rail will create 7,700 jobs, and refers to the infrastructure development as a “megaproject” that is a “defining moment for Queensland.”

 

Hannah Schuhmann is confident these major projects are all steps in the right direction for Brisbane to morph into an attractive World City within the next 5 years.
