ADANI’S Carmichael coal mine is set to deliver a jobs boost to central Queensland after the company signed a $40 million contract to deliver workers camps for construction of its 200km railway.
ASX-listed mining contractor Decmil will design and construct three temporary camps along the Adani rail corridor, which will link the thermal coal mine with existing rail infrastructure.
Adani CEO Lucas Dow said the contract would boost the Rockhampton and Central Queensland economies.
As yet, however, there are no specifics on the number of jobs that will be made available.
“The Decmil team will in to our Rockhampton office along with Martinus, our track laying contractor,” he said.
“The operations of the rail camps will be based in Collinsville, earthworks and civil works are coming from Townsville and Rockhampton, fuel supply is from Townsville, telecommunications is from Mackay and many other regional businesses across regional Queensland are also getting involved.”
