Bechtel has been selected by Western Sydney Airport Company as delivery partner and project manager for construction of the AUD5.3 billion (USD11.4 billion) greenfield Western Sydney Airport (WSA) in Badgerys Creek.
Western Sydney Airport Company also announced that Bechtel won a separate contract to manage the design contract.
Construction of WSA is due to commence in 2018. Lendlease and CBP Contractors (a subsidiary of CIMIC Group) are responsible for the early earthworks contract, with 1.8 million m3 of earth to be moved.
Airside civil packages are expected to go to tender later in 2018. WSA is planned to open in 2026.
