Airfield works to support exponential growth
CPB Contractors is working with the Brisbane Airport Corporation Pty Ltd to construct the New Parallel Runway in a 50:50 joint venture with BMD Constructions.
Brisbane Airport is one of Australia’s fastest growing passenger and freight transport hubs, and we are committed to working with Brisbane Airport and all major stakeholders to ensure that the project’s planned operational, social and economic benefits are achieved through innovative and cost-effective solutions.
The airfield works contract is the final contract for the construction of the New Parallel Runway project.
Brisbane Airport estimates that the new parallel runway will mean the number of landings and departures will increase from 227,000 flights each year to 360,000 by 2035, and up to half-a-million flights by 2045.
Scope of work includes:
- The delivery of a 3.3km main runway and 12km taxiway system.
- Construction of airfield infrastructure, such as navigational aids, airfield lighting, multiple utilities, signage, operations roads, airfield drainage and landscaping, security fencing and control systems.
- The runway is expected to be fully operational in 2020.
