BRISBANE. One year since Brisbane Airport’s new runway opened, we take a look at how ADB SAFEGATE provided a turnkey AGL delivery for the most challenging airport project in Australia’s recent history. Tackling dredged sand and a high water table with a massive civil build, before installing and commissioning electrical infrastructure and airfield systems, our team completed the project in under 2.5 years. The airport now has a world-class parallel runway system, supporting up to 110 aircraft movements per hour. It’s the country’s most efficient, and comparable to international airport hubs like Singapore and Hong Kong in terms of capacity.
