Airport Link Brisbane, Australia
HeidelbergCement’s subsidiary Hanson Australia supplied 2,900 cubic metres of concrete in a continuous pour for Australia’s largest road infrastructure project ‑ the AU$4.8 billion Airport Link, Northern Busway, and Airport Roundabout Upgrade at Brisbane Airport.
Hanson supplied a special low heat mix developed and trialed specifically for the project. The pour was completed in 10 hours. The scale of the pour required 64 agitators, five concrete plants (decreasing to four), and 31 pre-loaded tippers. Of the 424 loads batched and delivered to site, not one was rejected by the testers, highlighting the professionalism and dedication of all plant staff and agitator drivers involved in the pour.
