Cross River Rail’s Boggo Road site in Brisbane is a hive of activity, with thousands of tonnes of concrete and steel being used to build the new underground station.
Around 120 workers are onsite everyday building the new station inside the 27-metre-deep box and underground cavern.
Crews have so far poured enough concrete to fill six Olympic swimming pools and installed enough steel to outweigh the Eiffel Tower.
Two of the strongest tower cranes in the world – each capable of lifting 330 tonnes at once, or the equivalent of about 47 African elephants – are being used to help move the steel reinforcement into place.
The new Boggo Road station will become South East Queensland’s second busiest interchange when it opens, with almost 23,000 people expected to use the station each weekday.
