Adani Australia CEO Jeyakumar Janakaraj said the project was advancing on many fronts with milestones being achieved every day, including in surveying, geotechnical works, detailed designing, cultural heritage and financing.
“We will break ground within days to mark the official start of work on the rail link. And we remain confident and committed to deliver first coal in March 2020. We also still have major contract announcements in coming weeks,” Janakraj said in a statement.
