Maritime works will barge ahead in no time

Our beautiful sub-tropical weather gives us every reason in the world to want to be outdoors enjoying the sunshine, and that is why Queen’s Wharf Brisbane is creating more public space for people to enjoy.

By the time the development is expected to open in late-2022, the precinct will collectively offer more than 12 football fields of public space.

‘The Landing’ will be one of the most significant parks within the development and will be built out over the river’s edge to provide additional green space.

To create this new area, our contractor Probuild will install approximately 160 steel piles into the Brisbane River to accommodate a 6,500m2 suspended concrete structure over the water, to then be developed into the future public space.

The Landing will be landscaped with garden beds, seating areas and lush lawn – providing a beautiful new space to either relax in or to accommodate future public events.

To date, temporary site fencing has been installed along the area where works will occur.

On 31 July, a large 75m x 30m barge arrived on the Brisbane River under the control of the Harbour Master’s Pilot. For large vessels over 50m, specific Harbour Master Pilots are required to steer the vessel into position.

Two smaller barges will follow and be used to support the large barge with piling activities.

The barges will also undertake work to extend and improve the existing Finger Wharves beneath the Riverside Expressway to enable future temporary vessel berthing facilities at the Queen’s Wharf site.

The Landing and wharf facilities are expected to open in late-2022 as part of the entire Queen’s Wharf Brisbane development.
