WCN Editorial Team 5 Feb 2019 ASIA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Port of Brisbane (PBPL) has selected Brady Marine & Civil and Hindmarsh as principal contractors for its A$158m ($114.4m) Brisbane International Cruise Terminal project.

Following the appointment of principal contractors, the construction on the project is expected to start in the coming months.

Brady Marine & Civil, a specialist marine infrastructure and engineering contractor, will oversee the wharf construction of Brisbane International Cruise Terminal, while Australian construction firm Hindmarsh is responsible for civil works and terminal building.

Queensland state development, manufacturing, infrastructure and planning minister Cameron Dick said: “The Port of Brisbane’s $158 million Brisbane International Cruise Terminal signals bright horizons for the cruising industry in Queensland.

“It is expected to contribute $1.3 billion in net expenditure into the Brisbane economy alone over the coming two decades.”

PBPL CEO Roy Cummins noted that early preparation for the wharf had already started with ABFI Steel Group initiating the work of manufacturing 105 piles with up to 45m long.

Piling is also expected to begin soon following the wharf construction. At present, relocation of around 85,000 cubic metres of surcharge (clean sand) is underway.

Hindmarsh is planning to start preparing the site for construction in March this year, and work is expected to begin in April.

Cummins further added: “Importantly, both have strong track records for innovation and project delivery, together with the proven experience and capabilities required to help us deliver this world-class cruise facility.

“With the start of major construction of the Brisbane International Cruise Terminal now imminent, we look forward to sharing the progress and milestones with the community as the new facility begins to take shape.”

In October 2017, Port of Brisbane signed an agreement with the state government for the development of Brisbane International Cruise Terminal at Luggage Point.

The facility is being developed to meet the requirements of cruise vessels of all sizes, including the largest ocean-going cruise ships in the world.

In addition, the terminal will serve as gateway to the great south-east, enabling to increase economic and tourism opportunities for the region.
