JV lands $400m Brisbane runway

A 50:50 joint venture of BMD Constructions and Cimic’s CPB Contractors has won a contract worth AU$400m (£269m) for the new runway at Brisbane Airport in Australia.

The new runway will be built parallel to the existing one under the contract for Brisbane Airport Corporation. The new runway is being built on 360ha of reclaimed soft marshland.

CPB Contractors managing director Román Garrido said: “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 CPB and BMD contract is the final section of the new parallel runway project and includes delivery of the 3.3km main runway and 12km taxiway system together with airfield infrastructure such as airfield lighting, multiple utilities, operations roads, airfield drainage, security fencing and control systems.

Construction is scheduled to start in the coming weeks, with the runway expected to be fully operational in 2020.
