QLD: Cars Struck as Drill Breaks Through Road

An exploratory drill has burst through an Airport Link work site, hitting two cars and causing heavy traffic around the area on Tuesday.

A 6 cm drill was working 25m under Lutwyche Rd when it broke through the road surface.

According to State Infrastructure Minister Stirling Hinchliffe, all exploratory drilling on the project have been suspended until further notice.

“This is obviously a real concern and I am demanding answers,” he said.

No one was hurt in the incident.

Investigations by the contractor and Workplace Health and Safety Queensland are underway.
