Airport Link (M7) Brisbane


Air Quality, Noise Assessment and Monitoring

Airport Link (M7) Tunnel Entrance

Introduction
The Airport Link M7 is a 6.7 kilometre toll road that mainly travels underground. The project connects the CLEM7 tunnel, the Inner City Bypass and the local road network at Bowen Hills to the northern arterials of Gympie Road and Stafford Road at Kedron, as well as Sandgate Road and the East West Arterial leading to the airport. The 6.7 kilometre Airport Link M7 required twin 5.1 kilometre tunnels, with entry and exit portals at Bowen Hills, Kedron and Toombul.
