Information about tenders for Western Sydney Airport attracted more than 500 representatives from a range of industries last week. The industry representatives gathered in Penrith to learn more about opportunities to tender for design and construction work on the Western Sydney Airport.
Opening in 2026, Western Sydney Airport will be a full-service domestic and international airport with a single runway and capacity for up to 10 million annual passengers in its early years. The airport will expand in line with demand and a second parallel runway may be added in the future.
The Australian Government announced in this year's Budget that it will invest up to $5.3 billion in equity in the Western Sydney Airport through WSA Co. The Government's role in Western Sydney Airport will be as investor, not builder, and WSA Co will recruit managers to the project.
Industry will be approached through multiple competitive tenders to ensure the best deal in terms of value for money, schedule and risk allocation is made. Subscribers to Australian Tenders can create alerts for these upcoming tenders.
Western Sydney Airport will be a catalyst for economic transformation in the region and is expected to generate 20,000 direct and indirect jobs by the early 2030s. Located 50kms from the Sydney centre at Badgery's Creek, the non-curfew airport will be among the most prominent construction projects in the country over coming years. The project will attract market-leading construction and services companies wishing to be part of developing a world-class airport.
Initial works on the site will commence before the end of next year.
