About This Project

LOCATION: Brisbane


TYPE OF PROJECT: Infrastructure


YEAR(S): 2010 – 2012


CLIENT: John Holland




The Airport Link is a tunnelled, motorway grade, toll road in the northern suburbs of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It connects the Brisbane central business district and the Clem Jones Tunnel to the East-West Arterial Road which leads to the Brisbane Airport. It was built in conjunction with the Windsor to Kedron section of the Northern Busway in approximately the same corridor.


The Airport Link and busway project involves 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) of tunnelling including the road (6.7 km of twin tunnels), busway tunnels and connecting ramps, as well as 25 bridges and result in over 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) of new road. The Airport Link is Australia’s longest road tunnel.


Cogent Scaffolding worked on the Airport Link / Busway for 2 years, 24 hours a day.


Various jobs were completed inside and outside of the Tunnel. These include Form Supports for the Smoke Duct which runs along the length of the Tunnel and various access and egress.


With Cogent Scaffolding’s experience in all aspects Form Supports we have completed the jobs with ease and on schedule.


We are proud of our achievement in helping to complete this new and exciting piece of Brisbane infrastructure.
