$6 billion CIMIC Group has been selected to deliver the Western Sydney International Airport’s airside civil and pavement works.
The design and construction contract will generate revenue of approximately $265 million to CIMIC subsidiary, CPB Contractors.
The contract is the third project awarded by Western Sydney Airport to the joint venture, following the earlier award of two earthworks packages.
The scope of works includes airside services and utilities, including aircraft pavements (runway and taxiways), aircraft isolation pad, airside roads, landscaping and aeronautical ground lighting system (including associated sub-station buildings) and other specialist systems.
Construction will take two years. Western Sydney International Airport is due to open in late 2026.
CIMIC Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria said: “Western Sydney International Airport is set to be a catalyst for job creation and growth across the region for decades to come. We are proud to apply CIMIC Group’s aviation expertise and track record in Western Sydney to the construction of this nation building airport infrastructure.”
CPB Contractors Managing Director Jason Spears said: “CPB Contractors will work closely with our client to deliver these aviation facilities for the millions of passengers who will be using the new Western Sydney International Airport. We will leverage our experience in delivering major projects in Western Sydney to maximise training and jobs for local people and economic opportunities for local suppliers.”
