Wagners Cement have commenced construction of their new wharf to service their facility at Pinkenba. Pile driving for the new wharf is currently underway. Furthermore, increased berth occupation and port traffic is expected due to military exercised in the vicinity of the Port. Every second year a military exercise named ‘Talisman Sabre’ takes place at Shoalwater Bay on the central Queensland coast. This increases military traffic in Brisbane at early August as naval vessels lay up before and after the exercise.
