According to Adani Mining CEO Lucas Dow, mining equipment and machinery is beginning to arrive onsite from Mackay.
“One of our 600 tonne excavators has already been constructed on site and is ready to get to work as soon as the first of our mining trucks arrive,” Mr Dow said, going on to provide an update on vehicle assembly and addressing claims about automated trucks.
“Twenty four of our trucks, that all need people to drive them, are being assembled in Mackay and will arrive on site soon.”
Adani has assured jobs will be guaranteed with the coal mine and the railway set to be operated using conventional and existing operational practices currently in place throughout Queensland.
So far, over $750 million in contracts have been signed and more than 200 people are working onsite.
A further 1200 beds are set to be added for the workforce with the progressing construction of the temporary rail camps, in addition to further beds to be added with the mine camp expansion.
