Toll road operator BrisConnections collapses

Queensland toll road operator BrisConnections has collapsed seven months after the opening of the troubled $4.8 billion Airport Link tollway in Brisbane.

The 6.7 kilometre tollway was only used by an average of 47,000 motorists a day through December, falling well short of the 135,000 vehicles a day that had been forecast to use the road from July onwards.

A consortium of 10 banks, including ANZ, Deutsche Bank and BNP Paribas, appointed PPB Advisory as receivers after lending $3.3 billion to the company.
