Major earthworks

Major earthworks

The Major Earthworks contract was awarded to CPB Contractors and Lend Lease Joint Venture (CPBLL JV) in August 2019. On 9 September 2020 Acciona completed the acquisition of Lendlease Engineering and as such the Major Earthworks Contractor is now referred to as CPB Contractors and Acciona (CPBACC JV). 

The major earthworks stage involves significant design and construction responsibilities, including moving around 25 million cubic metres of earth to support construction of the major elements of the airport, such as the runway and terminal.  

WSA and its contractors are committed to keeping the community and other stakeholders informed about the earthworks project as it progresses. We welcome your feedback on this project and our other activities. Please make contact with our community team (see contact details below).
