CPB Contractors wins major contracts in Australia and New Zealand


Cimic Group firm CPB Contractors has secured a $119m contract from the NSW Government for the Northern Road upgrade Stage 6 project in Australia.

The NSW Government is an Australian state democratic administrative authority of New South Wales.

As part of the deal, CPB Contractors will carry out the Northern Road upgrade between Eaton Road and Littlefields Road, a crucial component of the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan.

The company plans to start the construction in the middle of 2019 and complete it in 2021.

At present, CPB Contractors is delivering Stage 5 of the Northern Road upgrade between Luddenham and Glenmore Park.

The company, along with its joint venture partners, is also delivering Stage 1 of the Parramatta Light Rail and carrying out early earthworks for Western Sydney Airport.

The Northern Road is an important north-south road corridor between Liverpool and Penrith.

CPB Contractors will upgrade 3.6km of existing two-lane road to deliver a four-lane divided road, in addition to upgrading 2.5km of local arterial roads and adjust public utilities.

The corridor is said to intersect with major roads such as the Great Western Highway, M4 Motorway, M12 (proposed), Elizabeth Drive, Bringelly Road, and Camden Valley Way.

Cimic Group CEO Michael Wright said: “Through CPB Contractors, CIMIC Group has a long track record of delivering high-quality roads and transport projects. We’ll continue to work closely with the Australian and State governments to provide important infrastructure for future generations.”

CPB Contractors has also secured NZ$221m ($150.6m) contract from Ōtākaro to build the Christchurch Metro Sports Facility in New Zealand.

Once completed, Christchurch facility will become the largest aquatic and indoor recreation and community venue in the country.

Under the deal, CPB Contractors will construct 10-lane competition pool with seating for 1,000 spectators, swim leisure area, nine indoor netball and basketball courts, as well as show court with retractable seating for 2,500 spectators.

Wright added: “This project continues CPB Contractors’ long track record of providing important infrastructure in New Zealand.”
