Sydney (Thorsten/Dreamstime)
A 50/50 joint venture between Cimic Group subsidiary CPB Contractors and Australia’s Georgiou Group has won a US$356m contract to build the western section of the M12 Motorway in New South Wales.

The road will link Sydney’s motorway network to the new Western Sydney International Airport, also known as Nancy-Bird Walton.

The package involves the construction of 6.1km dual-carriageway between Northern Road in Luddenham and Badgerys Creek, along with 11 bridges and a grade-separated interchange with the airport.

Work on the project is due to begin this year and be completed by 2025.

Juan Santamaria, Cimic’s chief executive, said: “This is an exciting time for Western Sydney, and CPB Contractors is applying its expertise on projects across the region. We are very pleased to have another opportunity to deliver an important part of the infrastructure required to support the new airport.”

Jason Spears, CPB Contractors’ managing director, said: “CPB Contractors will ensure that this project creates opportunities for local suppliers and subcontractors. Our teams are experienced in safely delivering major road projects in Sydney and will deliver this road according to schedule, ensuring it is available before the Western Sydney International Airport opens.”
