The Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Cities and Regional Development awarded AECOM the Project Management and Technical Support contract in December 2017 for the provision of comprehensive project management and specialist technical support to the Department during the development of Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport.

The airport is one of Australia’s most significant transport infrastructure projects. The Commonwealth has granted an Airport Lease to the government-owned company, known as Western Sydney Airport, to build and operate the airport. AECOM will support the Department in meeting its obligations and responsibilities ensuring the airport stays on track to be delivered by 2026.

AECOM is providing highly specialised project management advice and technical services to support the review and approval of design documentation, construction programs and other deliverables, aligned with the quality specifications and milestones for the delivery of the airport.
