Transforming the way Sydney moves

CPB Contractors worked with Roads and Maritime Services to design and construct Sydney’s $4.3 billion New M5 Motorway, in a joint venture with Dragados and Samsung C&T.

The New M5 tunnel is Stage 2 of WestConnex, Australia’s largest integrated transport and urban revitalisation project and is being delivered by Sydney Motorway Corporation (SMC) on behalf of the NSW Government.

Delivery leveraged our team’s road and tunnelling capabilities and experience in managing complex interfaces between construction, network operations and surrounding communities.

The joint venture has extensive Australian and international experience in tunnelling and major infrastructure delivery.

The New M5 runs via twin tunnels from the existing M5 East at Kingsgrove to a new interchange at St Peters, more than doubling the corridor capacity and substantially improving east‐west corridor access between the Sydney CBD, Port Botany and Sydney Airport precincts and the south-west growth areas.

Scope of work included:

  • Approximately 9km of new tunnels, motorway to motorway connections to the King Georges Road Interchange Upgrade at Beverly Hills; and
  • A new interchange at St Peters.

The New M5 opened to traffic in late 2019.
