Another milestone has been achieved for the Coomera Connector Stage 1 North package with the first year of construction nearly complete.

Since construction started for the North package just under 12 months ago, the project team has completed more than 80 per cent of piling works on both the new, nearly one-kilometre-long Coomera River bridge and Coomera overflow bridge, with 148 piles installed to date.

In that time, the project team has started bridge girder installation with 16 of close to 500 girders installed on the new Coomera River bridge.

Extensive ground improvement works are also underway, including the installation of close to 3,500 controlled modulus columns across the project, to stabilise and reinforce the ground.

Additionally, over two kilometres of new drainage infrastructure is now in place, with more than 2,000 workers inducted to the construction site.

Construction of the Coomera Link Road upgrade (Shipper Drive and Foxwell Road) is also underway.
