Airside Civil and Pavement Works

Airside Civil and Pavement Works

The Airside Civil and Pavement works package (ACP) was awarded to the CPB ACCIONA Joint Venture in September 2021. This package involves the design and construction of the airside services and utilities which includes runway and taxiway pavements, aircraft pavement markings, airside roads, surface water drainage, aeronautical ground lighting systems, airside security fence and landscaping.     

The ACP package will include the construction of:

  • a 3.7-kilometre runway
  • access and exit taxiways and four rapid exit taxiways (RET) pavements
  • parallel taxiway pavements and aircraft isolation pad
  • an aeronautical ground lighting system (including related substation buildings) for CAT IIIB operations. This will allow Western Sydney International to operate safely in foggy conditions
  • perimeter roads and airside roads
  • security fencing, including civil works for services such as CCTV, lighting, communications and power.
