Legacy Way breaks through for the second time

BMD Constructions celebrated the breakthrough of the second of two tunnel boring machines today with a dramatic show of dust and water following the rock wall separating from the borer and collapsing in a ‘clean cut’. Mick and Scott Power joined Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk and Federal Trade Minister Craig Emerson to witness the completion of tunnelling on the $1.5 billion project’s second passage at Kelvin Grove this morning. The Legacy Way project is being delivered by the Transcity Joint Venture, which is comprised of BMD Constructions, ACCIONA & Ghella and is due for completion in 2015. Once complete, the project will comprise twin, two-lane tunnels, 4.6 kilometres in length, connecting commuters between the Mt Coot-tha roundabout in Toowong and the Inner City Bypass at Kelvin Grove.
