The vision for Western Sydney International Airport, also known as Nancy-Bird Walton Airport, is a step closer to reality with three parties shortlisted to build the airport’s passenger terminal. Western Sydney Airport CEO Simon Hickey said the integrated international and domestic passenger terminal will offer passengers and their families a stress-free travel experience. He said “The advantage of designing a new airport from the ground up is taking a fresh, new approach, learning from the global experiences of airports, passengers and airlines. As well as looking at what makes the world’s best airports work so well, we gained insights from our airline MOU partners that helped us design a terminal that will make catching a plane fast and easy.”

Mr Hickey said sustainability was a key consideration in the terminal design and will take advantage of natural sunlight and air flows to reduce energy use and create a healthier, more comfortable environment.

The terminal precinct will include a public plaza, retail and dining options and will be connected to the new M12 Motorway and Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport train service. Shortlist of three parties vying to win the terminal design and construction contract was revealed.
Lendlease CPB Joint Venture, a joint venture between Lendlease Building and CPB Contractors
Multiplex Constructions
Watpac Construction

Design of Western Sydney International’s passenger terminal is ongoing and will be finalised when the winning contractor is appointed in mid-2021. Terminal construction is due to begin by the end of 2021. The first stage of Western Sydney International is on track to open in 2026 and will cater for up to 10 million passengers a year. The airport is being designed to grow with demand and is predicted to reach 82 million annual passenger capacity in the 2060s, when it will become one of the largest gateways to Australia.
