CIMIC Group company CPB Contractors, with its joint venture partner, has won an earthworks project for the construction of Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport.
CPB Contractors and its partner will deliver the airport’s bulk earthworks, generating revenue of approximately $323 million to CPB Contractors.
This is the second project awarded by Western Sydney Airport to the joint venture, following award of an early earthworks package in July 2018.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Michael Wright said: “CIMIC Group is proud to play a continuing role in this important facility, which will be a major catalyst for economic development and employment in Western Sydney.
“CIMIC Group continues to deliver new infrastructure for future generations across our NSW, national and international operations.”
CPB Contractors Managing Director Juan Santamaria said: “This builds on CPB Contractors’ growing list of airport infrastructure projects including the taxiway upgrade at Auckland Airport and the airfield works for the new runway at Brisbane Airport.
“CPB Contractors has a strong portfolio of major transport projects, including Sydney Metro and WestConnex in NSW, West Gate Tunnel and Melbourne Metro in Victoria and Cross River Rail in Queensland.”
Bulk earthworks include overall topographical and drainage design for the entire airport precinct; detailed design and construction of earthworks and drainage for the area.
Work will commence later this year and is scheduled to be completed in 2022.
