260t ZLK Tunneling Crane

Project Ref: 41798
Client: LBBJV
Project: Crane for the Airportlink Project in Brisbane
Scope: 260t double girder overhead crane

In 2006 LBBJV purchased all the cranes for the TBM (Tunnel Boring Machine) launch site at Bowen Hills for the Chlem 7 tunnel construction. Among those cranes was a fully customised 260t overhead crane, this crane was 100% designed and manufactured in Australia at Eilbeck Cranes Ingleburn NSW plant.

The crane was taken from concept design and delivered to site in 14 weeks from placement of order. A delivery schedule which is something that Eilbeck Cranes has a well-earned reputation for.

Project Overview

Airportlink is Brisbane’s new 6.7 km toll road, connecting the CBD to Brisbane Airport, Australia TradeCoast and the rapidly growing northern suburbs.

It is Australia’s largest privately funded transport infrastructure project to date, and is on track to open to the public mid-2012. Primarily underground, Airportlink connects the Clem7 Tunnel, Inner City Bypass and local road network at Bowen Hills, to the northern arterials of Gympie Road, Stafford Road at Kedron, Sandgate Road, and the East West Arterial leading to the airport and Australia TradeCoast.

When complete, Airportlink will play a key role in building a better Brisbane community by enhancing choice, reducing congestion and transforming the road network.

Airportlink is a multi-destination road, servicing an area that contains more than 60% of the Brisbane population. It will boost business efficiency in the economic heart of one of Australia’s highest growth cities.

BrisConnections has contracted Thiess John Holland, a joint venture between Thiess Pty Ltd and John Holland Group, to undertake the design and construction of Airport Link, Northern Busway (Windsor to Kedron) and Airport Roundabout Upgrade. A separate Thiess John Holland entity will provide operations and maintenance services to BrisConnections for the first five years of operations.

Airport Link, Northern Busway (Windsor to Kedron) and the Airport Roundabout Upgrade are expected to be completed by mid 2012.
