The government of New South Wales has chosen Bouygues, Lendlease and Samsung Construction & Trading to build the 7.5km main tunnel of the M4-M5 Link, which is part of Sydney’s 33km WestConnex project.
The joint venture will connect two of Sydney’s busiest motorways, creating a western bypass of the central business district.
Paul Fletcher, federal minister for urban infrastructure and cities, said: "This is the crucial final piece of this transformational infrastructure project. WestConnex is delivering a skills legacy, with more than 10,000 direct and indirect jobs created over the life of the project."
Craig Laslett, Lendlease Engineering and Services chief executive, said: "The M4-M5 Link is a critical project that will drive Sydney’s economic growth and deliver new jobs and training opportunities."
