CIMIC's CPB selected for Sydney Metro - Western Sydney Airport

CIMIC Group's CPB Contractors, in joint venture with Ghella, has been selected by the NSW Government to deliver the Sydney Metro - Western Sydney Airport Station Boxes and Tunnelling Works (WSA-SBT).

The $1.8 billion contract, funded by the Australian and New South Wales governments, will generate revenue of approximately $1.35 billion to CPB Contractors.

The new metro railway runs from St Marys through to the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport and the Western Sydney Aerotropolis. It will provide a public transport service to the new airport and make a lasting economic contribution to Sydney's west.

The Sydney Metro-WSA-SBT contract involves the design and construction of 9.8 kilometres of twin tunnels and excavations for stations at St Marys, Orchard Hills, Airport Terminal Station, Aerotropolis Station and service facilities at Bringelly and Claremont Meadows.

Major work will start in the coming months for site establishment and preparatory works for tunnelling to get underway in early 2023.
