TSHD Brisbane Starts Work on New Cruise Terminal

Trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Brisbane has begun pumping operations for the $158 million Brisbane International Cruise Terminal project.

MGN Civil, a marine contractor who was working to prepare the site for the upcoming reclamation project, announced today that the TSHD Brisbane is back in town to build the new cruise terminal.

The site preparation works started earlier in November, and the construction of the new wharf is set to begin mid-next year.

The terminal, being built at Luggage Point on the north side of the Brisbane River, will be able to receive cruise vessels of all sizes and will also enable mega ships — vessels longer than 270m — to utilize Brisbane as a base port.

According to PBPL CEO, Roy Cummins, this new cruise terminal will secure the future of cruise tourism in South-east Queensland and help bring the world’s biggest cruise ships to Brisbane.

Earlier this month, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk also welcomed the Queensland’s first dedicated mega-cruise ship terminal. “Cruising is one of tourism’s great growth stories, for both international and domestic markets. A dedicated, purpose-built cruise ship terminal will boost our international reputation as a global tourism destination of choice.”

Following the completion of site works, the construction of the terminal building is set to begin in around 12 months.

The terminal building itself will be around 9,300 square meters set over two levels and connected to the wharf, with two air bridges facilitating the movement of passengers on and off the ships.
