Lendlease Engineering, together with its joint venture partner CPB Contractors, has secured the $644 million contract to undertake the major bulk earthworks package at Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport.

This extensive package of works includes delivery of the detailed design and construction of earthworks and drainage for the new airport, as well as topographical design for the entire airport precinct.

It is one of Australia’s largest ever bulk earthworks infrastructure projects to be awarded outside of the mining sector.

Dale Connor, the CEO of Lendlease Building and engineering, said up to 500 people are expected to work on the important stage.

"Lendlease has a long history of participating in the development of Western Sydney and we look forward to delivering this next stage of the Western Sydney International project”, Connor said.

“As Western Sydney’s future aerotropolis, the work on Western Sydney International will be a major contributor to the economic and social development of the region.

"This project gives Lendlease the ability to provide further skills, training and employment opportunities across Western Sydney."

The airport is being developed in stages by the Federal Government-owned Western Sydney Airport in response to passenger demand.

Stage 1 will see a single runway airport constructed with capacity for up to 10 million passengers a year.

The first package of works, also undertaken by Lendlease and CPB Constractors, began in September 2018.

The new bulk earthworks package will commence early next year and is scheduled to be completed in 2022.
