CIMIC’s CPB, Georgiou joint venture selected for $490M M12 package
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.
