AECOM has been awarded a contract to provide the civil engineering design for Sydney’s A$2.6bn ($1.9bn) Gateway Road Project in Australia.
The project will include the construction of a new 5 km, above-ground, toll-free connection from the St Peters interchange, to Sydney airport, Port Botany and beyond.
Upon completion, the project will provide a high capacity connection from the Sydney Airport and Port Botany to the new WestConnex St Peters Interchange.
Under the contract, AECOM will be responsible for the concept, environmental approvals and detailed design of Elizabeth Drive West.
The construction of the new road will complete the missing link in the Sydney motorway network and improve traffic flow around the airport and towards NSW’s busiest container port.
