Project Description

BRISBANE AIRPORT’S
NEW RUNWAY

BRISBANE, QLD

As part of the duplication of Brisbane Airport’s existing runway, PSK was commissioned to undertake a number of environmental assessments dating back to 2013. PSK continues to provide assistance with the post construction phase of the project. PSK is proud of the contributions we have made to this key piece of infrastructure which will bring significant economic benefits to the city of Brisbane for many years to come.
