Western Sydney Airport (WSA) will be developed by Federal Government-owned Western Sydney Airport Corporation (WSA Co.) in stages in response to passenger demand. Stage 1 will see a single runway airport constructed with capacity for up to 10 million passengers a year. WSA Co. announced in November 2017 that the main works will be tendered in three separate packages.
Package 1 will comprise:
- earthworks to move and redistribute 22 million cubic metres of soil;
- drainage, detention basins and water treatment facilities;
- utilities; and
- pavements for the northern runway, taxiways and aprons.
The package is to be a fixed price lump sum Design and Construct contract, with a reference design developed by GHD. WSA Co. intends to utilise a collaborative tender process for procurement and is proposing to provide unsuccessful tenderers with a capped monetary contribution to offset tender development costs.
Registrations of Interest for the package were called for on 9 February, while Expressions of Interest (EOIs) are indicatively scheduled for June 2018. EOIs will be due in August and will be followed by a Request for Tender (RFT) issued in September or October 2018. A preferred tenderer is to be selected in mid-2019 with package works scheduled to commence in the second half of 2019.
The works are scheduled to be completed in mid-2025.
