The headquarters for Western Sydney Airport Co (WSA Co) – the company that will deliver the new Western Sydney Airport – has been officially opened in Liverpool, Sydney.
Australian Minister for Urban Infrastructure, Paul Fletcher, Minister for Defence, Senator Marise Payne and Liverpool Mayor, Wendy Waller, agreed the opening of WSA Co’s office in Liverpool was an important next step in delivering the Western Sydney Airport by 2026.
Mr Fletcher said the announcement of the appointment of the final three WSA Co Board members meant they had the right mix of skills, expertise and local connections to deliver on the Government’s expectations for Western Sydney Airport.
Ms Payne said the new offices will be a modern home for WSA Co in the heart of Liverpool’s historic, and rapidly growing, CBD.
“Since its establishment in August (2017), WSA Co has made significant progress towards delivering the airport, including the release of first tenders to market for enabling works that will see construction activities commence next year,“ Ms Payne said.
“The Turnbull Government’s $5.3 billion investment in Western Sydney Airport is part of an unprecedented spend on new transport infrastructure across Western Sydney.”
Ms Waller said basing WSA Co in Liverpool is a vote of confidence for the area being a great place to do business.
“A central Liverpool location will make it easy for WSA Co to work with other great companies and institutions choosing to locate in Liverpool, including the Western Sydney University and the University of Wollongong,.
“Opening the headquarters of this company in Liverpool is a great day for high quality jobs in Western Sydney and we anticipate a huge boost to the local economy as new businesses are attracted here to supply WSA Co.”
WSA Co is expected to expand in 2018, with the appointment of its Chief Executive Officer and further staff joining the Liverpool office.
