John Holland selected for M7 Widening and M7-M12 Interchange Project contracts

John Holland selected as preferred contractor for M7 Widening & M7-M12 Interchange Project

John Holland has been selected as the preferred contractor to deliver the design and construction components of the M7 Widening & M7-M12 Interchange Project in New South Wales.

The proposal, which has received stage three approval from the New South Wales Government, includes widening the M7 Motorway and the delivery of the M7-M12 interchange, including a connection between Elizabeth Drive and the M12 Motorway.

Widening the Westlink M7 would improve journey times for freight and motorists and support the future M12 Motorway and the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport.

The M12 Motorway would provide direct access to Western Sydney International Airport at Badgerys Creek and connect to Sydney’s motorway network.

The contract is being delivered on behalf of WSO Co – a joint venture comprising Transurban Group, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and QIC Private Capital on behalf of its managed funds and clients.

John Holland CEO Joe Barr said the announcement marked an exciting milestone for the project.

“This is an important project for a rapidly growing part of Sydney, and we’re thrilled to be working with the WSO Co joint venture to bring its vision to life,” Barr said.

“The benefits of this project are clear – less congestion for motorists, a critical new connection to the Aerotropolis and Western Sydney Airport, and of course thousands of jobs created during construction.”
