Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport


Wagners undertook the construction of the jet-capable, Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport and Wellcamp Business Park in 2013. The first greenfield public airport built since Melbourne Tullamarine over 47 years ago, the airport was completed in 19 months and is designed to cater for large jets up to 747 size, facilitating the largest of airfreight into and out of the region. Wellcamp Business Park is a highly attractive business destination with wide landscaped streets, parklands, first class presentation of buildings, in proximity to a modern regional airport terminal.


Wagners have self-performed all the works on site (except for drill and blast):

  • Removal of top soil;
  • Cut and fill for stage 1 of business park;
  • Bulk rock fill for runway, taxiway and apron areas (from quarry established on site);
  • Fine crushed rock for capping layer on runway, taxiways, aprons and roads (from second quarry established on site);
  • Forming of roads;
  • Wagners have established a concrete plant on site to provide Earth Friendly Concrete for Apron, Terminal and other site buildings;
  • All 10.5 million tonnes of rock fill is from on-site, saving $100 million in construction cost compared to sourcing rock off-site and transporting to site.

Wagners’ “Earth Friendly Concrete” (EFC) was used for the construction of all heavy duty pavements in the aircraft turning areas as well as a range of other works on the project. There were two main EFC pavement areas as follows:

(i)    Turning node at the Northern end of the runway - 16,000 m2, 435 mm thick.

(ii)   Apron on the Western side of the runway - 32,000 m2, 435 mm thick.
