Construction contract for The Northern Road upgrade awarded to CPB

By on 01 November 2018

To deliver the next stage of New South Wales’ the Northern Road upgrade project, CPB Contractors has been awarded a $170 million construct-only contract by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).

As part of Stage 4 of the $1.6 billion The Northern Upgrade, this project will get CPB Contractors to upgrade the existing 6.7-kilometre stretch of road between Littlefields Road in Luddenham and Glenmore Parkway in Glenmore Park from two lanes to a divided four-lane alignment with kerbside bus lanes at each intersection.

Stage 4 is going to be delivered in three sections namely Mersey Road to Eaton Road, Eaton Road to Littlefields Road, and Little Roads to Glenmore Parkway. This upgrade to three sections will help divert traffic on the Northern Road around the future Western Sydney Airport and the Luddenham town centre.

Construction is set to begin in 2019 with completion due by 2022.
