A $3.6 billion project planned nearby The Sunshine Coast has promised to create more than 2000 jobs.
The search for the 2000 workers has begun at the same time as the first day of construction on the Queen’s Wharf development in Brisbane.
The project will involve work on the diaphragm wall, a concrete wall 172 metres in length which will provide a watertight underground barrier between the planned wharf and the Brisbane River.
Over the next 15 months workers are expected to excavate more than 450,000 cubic metres of material for the 5 level basement to accommodate thousands of parked cars.
Recruitment has started and hundreds more construction workers are needed to complete the project.
