NSW Government shortlist Mutiplex and John Holland after Lendlease stadium construction reversal

The NSW Government have shortlisted Multiplex and John Holland for the construction of the new Sydney Football Stadium following a blowout with Lendlease last month.

Lendlease was axed for the reconstruction of the stadium shortly after The Australian revealed that Lendlease was chasing tens of millions of dollars more to finish the project when it told the government it was unable to lower the cost.

However Lendlease will continue to oversee stage one demolition work at Allianz Stadium, which is on track for completion by the end of the year.

Minister for Sport John Sidoti said that the delivery of the new Sydney Football Stadium remains on time and on budget.

Both organisations have been invited to participate in a competitive tender process to deliver stage two of the project.

John Sidoti said, “The winning bidder will be announced later this year, following the receipt of stage two planning approval and completion of the tender evaluation.”

“We know that if we want to continue attracting global events we need our stadiums to be the best in the world but the NSW public expects us to negotiate the best price." 

“The NSW Government’s plan delivers the experience fans deserve. The refurbished Stadium Australia will move 46,000 seats up to 25 metres closer to the action to create more atmosphere,” Mr Sidoti said.
