Industry lines up for work at Western Sydney Airport

June 30, 2017 Headline News 1 Comment Email Email

More than 500 representatives from a range of industries gathered in Penrith in Western Sydney earlier this week to learn more about opportunities to tender for design and construction work on the Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek.

Opening in 2026, Western Sydney Airport will be a full-service domestic and international airport with a single runway and capacity for up to 10 million annual passengers in its early years. The airport will expand in line with demand and a second parallel runway may be added in the future.

The Australian Government announced in this year’s Budget that it would invest up to AUD 5.3 billion in equity in the Western Sydney Airport through WSA Co.

The Government’s role in Western Sydney Airport will be as investor, not builder, and WSA Co will recruit and procure the best and brightest to manage the project.

Industry will be approached through multiple competitive tenders to ensure the best deal in terms of value for money, schedule and risk allocation is made.

The Australian Government reiterated its commitment to Western Sydney Airport and the employment growth it will bring. Engaging with the private sector is an important part of this.

Western Sydney Airport will be a catalyst for economic transformation in the region and is expected to generate 20,000 direct and indirect jobs by the early 2030s, an official statement said.

Western Sydney Airport will be among the most prominent construction projects in the country over coming years. The project will attract market-leading construction and services companies wishing to be part of developing a world-class airport.

Initial works on the site will commence before the end of next year.
