CIMIC Group company CPB Contractors has announced that the company has been awarded a $119 million contract to deliver Stage 6 of the $3.6 billion upgrade project on The Northern Road - a key north-south route between Liverpool and Penrith.
Stage 6 of the project will run between Eaton Road and Littlefields Road. For this project, CPB Contractors will be upgrading 3.6 kilometres from a two-lane road to a four-lane divided road as well as upgrade approximately 2.5 kilometres of local arterial roads and deliver adjustments to public utilities.
“Through the delivery of our projects, CPB Contractors connect communities in many ways, and our team is proud to be delivering improved infrastructure for the people of Western Sydney.
“Our current work on Stage 5 of The Northern Road upgrade will help facilitate the smooth and safe provision of this important project and provide local community with certainty of delivery," CPB Contractors Managing Director Juan Santamaria said.
