The construction of Brisbane Airport’s planned eight-story car park will be subject to strict environmental conditions, the Federal Government has announced.

The car park will be built on the existing ground-level car park and will hold 5,300 to facilitate the future expansion and redevelopment of the domestic terminal.

The multi-level car park will use state-of-the-art technology including an electronic car park management system which identifies spaces as they become available; a video intercom system; CCTV and customer assistance points of contact.

Federal Transport Minister Anthony Albanese says the construction process will have to meet a number of conditions to ensure the car park has minimal impact on the environment.

Brisbane Airport Corporation has implemented sound environmental and traffic management plans for the construction and operational phases of the development.

He says the project meets important aeronautical and safety considerations

Brisbane Airport has projected that by 2030 about 34 million passengers will be using the facility per annum.

The average annual domestic passenger growth rate at Brisbane Airport for the last five years has been 9.2 percent - a large part of this growth has been regional passengers.

In 2007 -08 regional passengers set a new record with 938,769 arrivals and departures for the year, up 4% on the year before.
