Project Overview

South East Transit Project – Section 1A

This was an early works package of the South East Transit Project, in which we were required to complete works without impeding the operational efficiencies of numerous adjacent facilities: the South Brisbane railway line, Rydges Hotel, South Brisbane TAFE and the BCEC.  Works included:

  • Relocating major services
  • Constructing earth embankments
  • Ground improvement works
  • Installing RSS walls.
  • Piling
  • Piling Caps
  • Extensive soil nailing
  • Tunnel excavation
  • Tunnel lighting
  • Tunnel mechanical services
  • Tunnel drainage including a pump station
  • Tunnel lining
  • Concrete pavements

South East Transit Project – Section 1B

Wedged between major cultural and business facilities, Section 1B Extension required Bielby Holdings to construct a cut and cover tunnel directly under the loading dock of the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and the concrete carriageway between Melbourne Street and Ernest Street in South Brisbane.

All of the work had to be carried out with one singular point of access on to Melbourne Street and under and beside a very busy Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, South Brisbane rail line and station.

  • Scope of work included:
  • Extensive soil nailing
  • Tunnel excavation
  • Tunnel lighting
  • Tunnel mechanical services
  • Tunnel drainage including a pump station
  • Tunnel lining
  • Concrete pavements
