Brisbane airport security review after serious breach

Authorities at Brisbane airport have issued a security review after a vehicle crashed through the perimeter fence and entered the runway.

The event has caused the Australian government to criticise the airport’s security regime, ahead of the upcoming G20 summit which will be held in Brisbane in November.

Roger Henning, Director of Homeland Security Asia/Pacific, said: “No doubt Brisbane Airport’s perimeter fence meets the out-dated ‘old world’  Federal Requirements, but advisors to Heads of State attending the G20, will be shocked and alarmed at the slack security in place this week. It is simple and inexpensive to install efficient gravel pits next to chain wire fencing, or moats, to stop a car or truck in its tracks. Brisbane is a quality airport, with out-dated fencing around its massive perimeter, soon to be partially improved with concrete barriers. A total, not partial solution is required. “

Henning also said: “Efforts to play down this failure at Brisbane Airport will be fruitless, as closure of this facility would be a billion-a-week hit on the Australian economy.”
