Seymour Whyte and John Holland will deliver the toll-free Sydney Gateway motorway, a project that will transform how people move in Sydney and create thousands of jobs.
John Holland CEO Joe Barr said Sydney Gateway will support up to 4,000 jobs and cut travel times for commuters using Sydney roads – with a capacity to carry 100,000 vehicles a day.
"This is a transformative project for Sydney, cutting up to 40 minutes of travel time for motorists from Parramatta to the Airport, returning local roads to local communities," Mr Barr said.
"We are proud to be trusted with this project, and will draw upon our experience delivering the New M4 East to ensure this motorway meets the expectations of commuters and communities. We are excited to be improving pedestrian and cycling links as part of this project, enhancing community space while delivering this vital motorway link."
Seymour Whyte Managing Director and CEO John Kirkwood said, “We are delighted to continue our working relationship with John Holland and the NSW Government; and to be awarded the Sydney Gateway contract to improve connectivity for motorists and active transport users."
"This critical motorway link will make Sydney more connected than ever before. We are proud to be part of this project that will be the gateway to the city for residents and visitors."
"This award demonstrates the civil engineering and technical ingenuity within our joint venture partnership. Together, we draw on our combined proven capability to efficiently deliver major infrastructure projects for an integrated road and public transport network."
"We are committed to working closely with our local suppliers, local communities and the government to deliver this important project safely and efficiently", Mr Kirkwood said.
Sydney Gateway is a link from the airport precinct, Port Botany and the surrounding road network to the newly opened St Peters Interchange and is one of the missing pieces of Sydney’s motorway network.
