CPB Contractors will upgrade existing road infrastructure between Luddenham and Glenmore Park, NSW, and is expected to generate around $170 million for the company.

The Northern Road and Bringelly Road upgrades are part of the $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan which aims to support integrated transport and capitalise on the benefits from developing the Western Sydney Airport.

Road infrastructure between Littlefields Road and Glenmore Parkway will be upgraded, including turning 6.7 kilometres of road from two lanes to a divided four-lane alignment, with kerbside bus lanes at each intersection.

CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Michael Wright said CIMIC and CPB Contractors have worked with the NSW Government and Roads and Maritime Services to develop a value-for money construction program to deliver resilient roads for future needs.

“The Northern Road upgrade project will support the development of an upgraded road network and capitalise on the benefits from the new Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek, which CPB Contractors is now proudly laying the foundations for with its joint venture partner.”

CPB Contractors Managing Director Juan Santamaria said delivering infrastructure within operation roads environments is core to CPB Contractors, with safety being the company’s top priority.

“We have a strong construction presence in NSW and in the Western Sydney area as we deliver the early works for Western Sydney Airport, meaning our agile technical teams will bring local knowledge and industry-leading experience to ensure all client and community expectations are realised.”

Construction is expected to begin in 2019 and conclude in 2022.
