Roads improvements to support regional growth
CPB Contractors has been selected by the Australian and NSW governments to deliver the next stage of The Northern Road upgrade project, which will upgrade existing road infrastructure between Luddenham and Glenmore Park.
The construct-only contract with Roads and Maritime Services, to be delivered as part of the $1.6 billion The Northern Road upgrade project, will generate revenue of approximately $170 million for CPB Contractors.
Construction is expected to commence in 2019 and conclude in 2022.
It brings CPB Contractors work in the area to $210 million, following the selection of CPB Contractors, with its JV partner, for the early earthworks package from Western Sydney Airport Co. The construct-only contract will generate approximate revenue to CPB Contractors of $40 million.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Michael Wright said: “CIMIC and CPB Contractors have worked collaboratively with the NSW Government and Roads and Maritime Services to develop a value-for-money construction program that will deliver high-quality roads assets that are resilient to future needs.
“The Northern Road upgrade project will support the development of an upgraded road network and capitalise on the benefits from the new Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek, which CPB Contractors is now proudly laying the foundations for with its JV partner.”
CPB Contractors Managing Director Juan Santamaria said: “Delivering next-generation infrastructure within operational roads environments is a core capability for CPB Contractors and during the works our absolute priority is the safety of our people and all road network users.
“We have a strong construction presence in NSW and in the Western Sydney area as we deliver the early works for Western Sydney Airport, meaning our agile technical teams will bring local knowledge and industry-leading experience to ensure all client and community expectations are realised.”
The Northern Road upgrade project will upgrade road infrastructure between Littlefields Road in Luddenham and Glenmore Parkway in Glenmore Park, including upgrading 6.7km of road from two lanes to a divided four-lane alignment, with the provision of kerbside bus lanes at each intersection.
The Australian and NSW governments are upgrading The Northern Road and Bringelly Road as part of the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan, a $3.6 billion program to support integrated transport in the region and capitalise on the economic benefits from developing the Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek.
