John Holland to deliver Airport East project

John Holland has been chosen by the NSW Government to manage delivery of the $170m Airport East project in Sydney, and help transform access to and from Sydney Airport and Port Botany.

Key features and benefits of the proposal include:
• Replacing the General Holmes Drive rail level crossing with a road underpass;
• Providing improvements to the Mill Pond Road intersections with General Holmes Drive and Botany Road; and
• Widening Joyce Drive and General Holmes Drive between O'Riordan Street and Mill Pond Road.

Chief Executive Officer, Joe Barr, said the project would improve traffic flow and access to the area and the movement of rail freight to and from Port Botany.

“This is a vital hub of economic activity for New South Wales, and we are proud to work with the State Government to ensure vehicles travel through as efficiently as possible,” he said.

Regional General Manager NSW/ACT, Scott Olsen, said whilst John Holland had grown and diversified, civil construction remained a key capability.

“Our advanced approach has been crucial when delivering some of Australia’s most complex road projects, such as Westconnex M4 East and the Pacific Highway - Devils Pulpit in New South Wales,” he said.

Construction is scheduled to commence in early 2017 and take approximately two years to complete.
