Salini Impregilo qualified for $1.6bn Sydney Gateway Project


Italian construction and civil engineering company Salini Impregilo has been shortlisted for the proposed construction of A$2.2bn - $2.4bn ($1.6bn) Sydney Gateway Project in New South Wales (NSW), Australia.

The project aims to deliver new connections from Sydney Airport’s Domestic and International terminals to the Sydney motorway network at St Peters Interchange.

As part of the project, road connections will be improved from Sydney Airport and Port Botany to the new Sydney motorway network.

The work is expected to allow airport and port traffic to avoid local arterial roads while accessing WestConnex and the broader Sydney Motorway network.

As part of an effort to improve infrastructure in the state, the bidding process is being handled by Transport for NSW.

The project will also involve the completion of missing links in the motorway network, enabling around 80,000 vehicles a day to travel on new roads, as well as a new flyover to the domestic terminals at Sydney Airport.

Subject to planning approval, construction of the toll-free proposed Sydney Gateway is planned to commence in late 2020.

The latest move follows NSW Liberals & Nationals Government’s expressions of interest for the Sydney Gateway project launched in July 2019.

New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian earlier said: “The delivery of the toll-free Sydney Gateway will be a massive improvement to the way motorists travel to Sydney Airport, and take around 10,000 heavy vehicles off local streets in Mascot every day as they travel to Port Botany.”

The Sydney Gateway project is expected to save up to 40 minutes on a trip from Parramatta to the domestic terminal, 30 minutes from Haberfield, 22 minutes from Bankstown or Campbelltown, and 19 minutes from Rozelle.

Additionally, it will save up to 36 minutes from Eastern Creek to Port Botany, 30 minutes from Silverwater, and 20 minutes from Moorebank or Wetherill Park.
