Arcadis, the leading global Design and Consultancy organisation for natural and built assets, has today announced that it has been selected to provide the civil engineering design for Sydney’s $2.6 billion Gateway Road Project, a new above ground, toll-free connection from the recently opened St Peters Interchange (as part of the WestConnex project) to Sydney Airport, towards Port Botany and beyond.
The project will complete a missing link in the Sydney motorway network, providing toll-free connections from the Sydney motorway network to the International and Domestic terminals, improving traffic flow, and diverting thousands of large trucks off local streets, so they can be returned to the community and providing a more efficient and safe connection to terminals for visitors and works. Through a new shared cycling and pedestrian path linking Alexandra Canal and the domestic terminals, the project also incorporates sustainable transport solutions.
The Sydney Gateway project is a complex and challenging project which our people are passionate to be a part of to draw on their technical skills, further strengthen their digital delivery and to be able to improve the quality of life for the community.
Malcolm McDowall - CEO, Australia Pacific: “The Sydney Gateway project is an incredibly important project for the Sydney community and for the overall NSW transport strategy, and we are thrilled to be part of the team bringing this to life. The project will strengthen Sydney’s position as a global city, supporting the growth of the economy and industry in the airport precinct.”
The Sydney Gateway project is part of the NSW Government’s long-term strategy to invest in an integrated transport network and make journeys easier, safer and faster. Arcadis, in a design joint venture with AECOM, will support John Holland/Seymour Whyte design and construction partnership, which was recently announced as the delivery partner by Transport for NSW.
