Construction works on Queensland’s Cross River Rail project are expected to double this year, according to the State Government.
Seven construction sites are currently active, with 11 new worksites expected to open in 2020.
Cross River Rail Minister Kate Jones said there are already 1000 workers on Cross River Rail sites across Brisbane. With the new sites set to open, she said they are looking at employing an extra 1500 workers this year.
“A worksite has now been established at Boggo Road, the existing site at Woolloongabba is already a hive of activity, demolition at Albert Street in the heart of the CBD is well advanced and work at Roma Street is well and truly underway,” she said.
