Toowoomba’s Second Range Crossing completion date could be pushed back by as much 7-months.
Nexus Infrastructure blames the delay on ‘complex geological issues’ under one of the embankments in the Ballard area which will slow the opening of the $1.6 billion project.
The issue has resulted in Nexus changing the construction methodology and building the foundation of the embankment from a deeper level. As a result, extensive additional earthworks are now required in a small section of the project.
These additional works will result in the project’s delay by up to 4-7 months.
