Airport waters off limits to fishos

BRISBANE fishos are being warned to stay away from waters near to the city’s airport, which is currently undergoing construction of a new runway.

The following nortice was issued by the Brisbane Airport Corporation:

For security and safety reasons, access to Brisbane Airport land, via land or water,
including the site of the new runway currently under construction, is strictly prohibited.
BAC has noticed that some anglers and crabbers have been entering Brisbane Airport
land, primarily via Jacksons Creek, the recently completed Kedron Brook Floodway
Drain and at Serpentine Inlet, and seeks the fishing community’s assistance to stop this unauthorised access.

The map below shows Brisbane Airport boundaries and the location of signage and barriers.
• Brisbane Airport is Commonwealth land and subject to the strictest security.
• The new runway site including Jacksons Creek and the new Kedron Brook Floodway Drain, are part of an active construction zone. Safety hazards exist on land and in the water.
• Jacksons Creek is closed and will soon be filled to the east of an existing row of installed buoys.
• Access is also prohibited to Serpentine Inlet within the Commonwealth boundary line.
• The Australian Federal Police (AFP) regularly patrol the airport site and its boundaries.
• If necessary, the AFP will take action against trespassers, including issuing Notices to Appear in court.
• The maximum penalty for trespassing is $1,700 per offence.
• Any item left unattended on airport land, such as crab pots, will be removed.
