AECOM’s Australia subsidiary is part of a consortium of companies that have formed an alliance with Main Roads Western Australia to deliver the state’s largest road project, the Gateway WA, which has a construction value of US$1.05 billion. AECOM’s contribution is expected to generate revenue in excess of US$10 million. The alliance includes design partners GHD and BG&E, and construction partners Leighton Contractors and Georgiou Group.
As design partner, AECOM will draw on national and international experience to provide engineering design, geotechnical investigations and environment approvals.
“We are eager to partner with Main Roads Western Australia on this key transportation infrastructure project,” said John M. Dionisio, AECOM chairman and chief executive officer. “We look forward to helping improve airport access for Western Australia residents, business travelers and visitors, and to enabling better management of the increasing traffic around and through the airport.”
The project will upgrade the Tonkin and Leach highways, and will include the construction of five new interchanges to create landmark road infrastructure around Perth Airport as well as surrounding industrial and freight hubs.
Construction on the project is scheduled to begin later this year and is expected to be completed by 2017, ahead of the planned consolidation of Perth Airport’s domestic and international terminals during 2018.
