Property and infrastructure firm Lendlease has bagged a contract from the Australian government as part of the AUD3.6bn ($2.6bn) Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan.

The contractor’s scope of work includes construction of the 11.5km section of The Northern Road between Peter Brock Drive and Mersey Road and the 4.3km upgrade of Bringelly Road between King Street at Rossmore and The Northern Road at Bringelly.

Federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure Paul Fletcher said: “These upgrades will prepare one of Australia's fastest growing region's roads for future traffic growth and improve travel times for motorists by widening the existing roads to four lanes in each direction.”

Minister for Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said: “Once the entire $1.6 billion The Northern Road Upgrade is completed, motorists travelling between Narellan and Penrith will benefit from 35 kilometres of upgraded road, meaning increased road capacity, less congestion and safer roads.”

The project is slated to commence shortly and be wrapped up by 2020.
