A joint venture between CIMIC Group company CPB Contractors and Georgiou Group has been selected by the NSW Government to deliver the western section of the M12 Motorway.
The M12 Motorway will provide direct access to the new Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport and connect the airport to Sydney’s motorway network.
The 50:50 joint venture will see the delivery of a 6.1-kilometre dual carriageway motorway between The Northern Road, Luddenham and 400-metres east of Badgerys Creek, along with construction of 11 bridges and a grade-separated interchange connected with the Western Sydney Airport.
The motorway will provide increased road capacity and reduce congestion and travel times in the future. It will also improve the movement of freight in and through Western Sydney.
The M12 Motorway project will complement upgrades to local roads and a new Sydney Metro, Western Sydney Airport Link, providing improved access to cater for future growth in Western Sydney.
NSW Premier, Dominic Perrottet, said the toll-free 16-kilometre motorway would be a vital infrastructure link.
“Western Sydney will be home to not just a new world-class airport, but a fantastic new motorway catering to locals and visitors from all around the world, ensuring easy and quick access,” the Premier said.
Executive General Manager East Coast Gary Georgiou said the project will see Georgiou return to Western Sydney where the company has previously delivered two stages of The Northern Road Upgrade.
“We have worked hard to build our capability and a great reputation with our client Transport for NSW through many successful projects, and the natural progression is to deliver larger projects and continue to build our expertise,” Georgiou said.
CIMIC Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria said the project would be delivered before the Western Sydney International Airport opens in 2026.
“This is an exciting time for Western Sydney and CPB Contractors is applying its expertise on projects across the region. We are very pleased to have another opportunity to deliver an important part of the infrastructure required to support the new airport,” Santamaria said.
The M12 project forms part of the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan. The Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan is a joint initiative of the Australian and NSW governments to fund a $4.4 billion road and transport program for Western Sydney.
The eastern section will provide a connection to Elizabeth Drive and the M7 Motorway. Procurement of this section will occur this year.
Work on the western package will commence this year and is scheduled to be completed in late 2025.
