Brisbane Airport operates 24/7, so resurfacing one of the world's busiest single runways while still catering for 60,000 passengers and 600 aircraft a day was one of the most complex, high pressure projects ever undertaken by the Corporation.
In the planning for one and a half years, then delivered in a nightly five hour window over an intense six months, the project team laid 42,000 tonnes of asphalt over a total area of 275,000m2 while the rest of Brisbane slept. On top of that, the project team also laid 43 kilometres of electrical cable updating the runways complex aeronautical ground lighting system.
