Sunshine Coast airport project receives environmental approval

Posted On May 19, 2016

The $347 million Sunshine Coast Airport runway expansion has received the Coordinator-General’s environmental approval.

Queensland Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, was on the Sunshine Coast to make the announcement.

“I firmly believe this expansion will help unlock the Sunshine Coast’s unlimited potential,” Palaszczuk said.

“My government is committed to facilitating transport and tourism infrastructure investment because it means more jobs for Queenslanders.”

The new runway will be 2450 metres long by 45 metre wide, capable of servicing aircraft such as the Airbus A330, Boeing 787 and Boeing 777.

State Development Minister, Anthony Lynham, said the development would attract hundreds of jobs and business opportunities.

“This project opens up the region to more national and international destinations such as Singapore and Perth and has the potential to bring almost half a million more visitors a year to the coast by 2040,” Lynham said.

“Most importantly, this will generate 1500 more ongoing jobs by 2040, more than 80 construction jobs and an estimated $140 million-plus boost to regional economic activity during construction.”

The approval includes 88 conditions and 29 recommendations.
