A diversified builder and supplier has won a primary tender for part of a $21 billion coal development in Central Queensland.

Wagners recently secured the quarry operation and haulage contract for Adani Australia’s Carmichael Coal Mine, about 160km northwest of Clermont.

The agreement involves supplying and delivering up to 1.5 million tonnes of quarry materials used to construct roads, camps, pads and dams at both the mine and 200km narrow gauge rail line. It also tasks the successful contractor with mine civil works and eventually operating the South Back Creek Quarry once it is complete.

Hiring now

Up to 40 jobs will be created throughout the lifetime of this part of the project. QMEB can reveal the deal is worth $35 million.

Wagners has begun hiring a multi combination heavy vehicle driver, loader operator and quarry site manager to work on a permanent fixed-term basis.

Successful applicants will work an even time roster of seven days on and seven days off (some night work is included). Locals, fly-in fly-out and drive-in and drive-out applicants are welcome to apply.
