WESTERN Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport has awarded an earthworks project to CIMIC Group company CPB Contractor and a joint venture partner.

CPB Contractors and its partner will deliver the airport’s bulk earthworks, generating revenue of about $323m to CPB Contractors.

This is the second project awarded by Western Sydney Airport to the joint venture, following award of an early earthworks package in July 2018.

CPB Contractors managing director Juan Santamaria said, “This builds on CPB Contractors’ growing list of airport infrastructure projects including the taxiway upgrade at Auckland Airport and the airfield works for the new runway at Brisbane Airport”.


CIMIC Group chief executive Michael Wright said CPB Contractors had a strong portfolio of major transport projects, including Sydney Metro and WestConnex in NSW, West Gate Tunnel and Melbourne Metro in Victoria and Cross River Rail in Queensland.

Bulk earthworks include overall topographical and drainage design for the entire airport precinct; detailed design and construction of earthworks and drainage for the area.

Work will start later this year and is scheduled to be completed in 2022.
