Government Unveils Flythrough for Brisbane Mega-Cruise Terminal

2

The government has today unveiled a new flythrough of Queensland’s first dedicated mega-cruise ship terminal, known as ‘Brisbane International Cruise Terminal’.

The flythrough shows the vision for Port of Brisbane’s $158 million Brisbane International Cruise Terminal which according to Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick says would put Brisbane on the world map as a mega-cruise ship destination and attract the world’s largest cruise ships.

“In what is a great example of the Palaszczuk Government working with the private sector, we are ensuring jobs and economic opportunities are set to sail our way,” he said.

“The cruise ship industry is booming worldwide, and this new terminal will help secure our slice of the market by providing a dedicated facility to accommodate larger ships that are unable to dock at Portside.

“The Port of Brisbane expects the Brisbane International Cruise Terminal will generate around $5 billion in economic value to Queensland over 15 years.

“It is estimated the project will generate over 240 jobs a year over its two-year construction period and an additional 49 operational jobs each year over the next 20 years, while the terminal will also create supply chain opportunities for local businesses, traders and tourism operators.

“This vital infrastructure – Queensland’s first dedicated mega cruise ship terminal – will be a fitting gateway for arriving visitors as they step on to Queensland soil and for those who can now depart in the mega cruise ships directly from Brisbane.”

Port of Brisbane CEO Roy Cummins said the new terminal would be a game-changer for the tourism sector.

“This is an exciting day as we launch the visuals of the new terminal and wharf and begin the countdown to the opening in 2020,” he said.

“We are pleased to be working with the Queensland Government to be able to deliver this infrastructure, and we look forward to welcoming the many international, national and local visitors who are expected to pass through the terminal annually.”

    Is there an artists impression of the disastrous and ugly drive the passengers will have to endure to get to and from the terminal?

    Very utilitarian. A bit more effort to make an impression on arriving visitors, esp given how they board or disembark nowhere near the inner city, would probably help.
