The intended contract, which’s value is $1.8 billion and is funded by the Australian and New South Wales governments, is due to produce revenue of almost $1.35 billion to CPB Contractors.
The path from St Marys through to the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport and the Western Sydney Aerotropolis is the extension route of this new metro railway, while it will present a public transport service to the new airport and make a lasting economic contribution to Sydney’s west.
According to CIMIC Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria: “This is a strategic transport investment that will generate long-lasting benefits for the people of Western Sydney and provide a significant boost to jobs during construction. CPB Contractors is already involved in the construction of the Western Sydney International Airport and the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project and will apply this experience to safely deliver this link.”
Also CPB Contractors Managing Director Jason Spears stated: “We are pleased to have been selected by the NSW Government to deliver another vital project for Western Sydney. Our tunneling teams are very experienced in delivering transport infrastructure in Sydney and will apply CPB Contractors’ expertise, gained delivering major projects across Australia, to maximize employment and training opportunities for local workers.”
The designing and constructing process of twin tunnels with 9.8 kilometers length and digging for stations at St Marys, Orchard Hills, Airport Terminal Station, Aerotropolis Station, and service facilities at Bringelly and Claremont Meadows, are the contents of Sydney Metro-WSA-SBT contract.
Although the initial activities for the tunneling process will commence in early 2023, the main work will begin in the coming months for site establishment.
