The NSW Government has selected its preferred contractor to deliver Stage 6 of the Northern Road Upgrade as part of its Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan.
CIMIC Group company CPB Contractors was awarded the contract, which is expected to yield a revenue of approximately $119 million.
The Northern Road is a key north-south road corridor between Liverpool and Penrith.
The contract concerns a series of upgrades between Eaton Road and Littlefields Road.
CPB Contractors will upgrade 3.6km of existing two-lane road to deliver a four-lane divided road, upgrade 2.5km of local arterial roads and adjust public utilities.
The corridor intersects with major roads such as the Great Western Highway, M4 Motorway, M12 (proposed), Elizabeth Drive, Bringelly Road, and Camden Valley Way.
Construction is expected to commence mid-2019 and conclude in 2021.
In Western Sydney, CPB Contractors is currently delivering Stage 5 of The Northern Road upgrade, between Luddenham and Glenmore Park.
Together with its joint venture partners, it is also delivering Stage 1 of the Parramatta Light Rail as well as the early earthworks for Western Sydney Airport.
CPB Contractors Managing Director, Juan Santamaria, said the team is proud to be delivering improved infrastructure for the people of Western Sydney.
“Our current work on Stage 5 of The Northern Road upgrade will help facilitate the smooth and safe provision of this important project and provide the local community with certainty of delivery,” Mr Santamaria said.
