Acciona and CPB’s joint venture to construct the runaway at Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport

September 23, 2021

ACCIONA has been awarded the Western Sydney Airport (WSA) Airside Civil and Pavement Works package in a joint venture with CPB.  This project builds on the major earthworks that ACCIONA and CPB are completing on the Western Sydney International site.

The new runway project will deliver critical public infrastructure and includes the design and construction of a 3.7km runway, 3,000 aeronautical ground lights, airside roads, site-wide High Voltage power, and the commissioning and integration of navigational aids, airfield security and systems.

Bede Noonan, ACCIONA’s CEO in Australia & New Zealand, said “We are thrilled to continue our work for WSA to deliver critical public infrastructure that will provide jobs and economic opportunities for Western Sydney.  This award is testament to our strong partnership with CPB, whose experience in delivering Brisbane’s new runway complements our pavements expertise for this job perfectly.”

ACCIONA’s Executive Regional Manager in New South Wales, Gavin Reymond, said “This contract further strengthens ACCIONA’s position in Western Sydney, a region experiencing significant investment in infrastructure.

“Our ongoing engagement with WSA is evidence of the hard work and strong performance of our consortium and the trust that WSA has in us to deliver this critical runway package.”
