Kids in construction

Posted on October 23rd, 2018

We were thrilled to recently host four senior students from Stretton State College as part of a pilot work experience program on the project.

Over the course of the Term 2 school holidays, each student spent two to three days on-site, getting a taste of the many construction activities and associated roles it takes to deliver a major infrastructure project.

Transurban Queensland Community & Stakeholder Engagement Manager, Lindsey Wowor, said the students were enthusiastic and eager to learn about the construction industry.

“During their time with us, the students were able to speak to various members of the Transurban Queensland and CPB Contractors teams, gaining valuable insights into how to get a job in the construction industry,” Lindsey said.

“Out in the field, the students were able to see first-hand some of the construction activities underway, including concrete pours and steel fixing as part of building new bridges.

“The intention is run this work experience program again prior to major construction finishing in mid 2019,” Lindsey said.
