Adani to create nearly 10,000 jobs as project gets underway

Adani Australia CEO says the project will create nearly 10,000 jobs as they prepare to begin construction after receiving government approvals on Thursday.

After years of delay, the Queensland government finally gave the coal mine the green light to begin construction.

Adani Australia CEO Lucas Dow says over 1500 jobs will be created during the construction process.

He estimates over 8,000 new jobs would be created through the project.

Mr Dow tells Ray Hadley the process is already underway.

“Couple of weeks back we’d already posted another 50 jobs… that will just increase from here.

“Two years from today… we’ll expect to have sold our first coal.”
