BrisConnections is dedicated to ensuring that AirportlinkM7 is
operated in accordance with environmentally conscious and
sustainable practices. Our approach to environmental
management and protection practices is designed to minimise the
impact of AirportlinkM7 on the environment.
Baseline monitoring was undertaken for operational traffic noise in
early 2008, six months prior to the start of
construction. Within twelve months of operation
commencing, a comparative study will be undertaken to confirm
that traffic noise remains compliant with noise goals from the
Department of Transport and Main Roads.
The ventilation station outlets have been designed to achieve
acoustic goals when in full operation so as to not adversely affect
community members in nearby properties.
AirportlinkM7 is designed to provide a safe driving environment for
motorists. As the tunnel will carry thousands of vehicles per
day, maintaining the quality of air both in and outside the tunnel
is an important part of day-to-day operation.
BrisConnections operates AirportlinkM7 in accordance with
conditions established by the Queensland Co-ordinator
General. These conditions are based on standards recommended
by the World Health Organisation for the maximum
allowable level of vehicle emissions in the air both in and
outside the tunnel.
