Fossils discovered on BMD project site in Brisbane

During construction of the Robinson Road Open Level Crossing Replacement Project in Brisbane, several ancient fossils of 50 million year old crocodiles, snail like creatures, plant leaves, and fish have been discovered. The Queensland Museum was immediately notified and is very excited about the discovery as currently there is limited evidence of well-preserved fossils within the Brisbane area. The $199 million project is being delivered by the Geebung Overpass (GO) Alliance, which is comprised of Brisbane City Council, BMD Constructions and SMEC Australia, and once complete the project will improve safety and reduce congestion. The GO Alliance and BMD Group are proud to be contributing to the history of science. _______________________________________________________________________________
