CIMIC company CPB Contractors has been selected by Australia Pacific Airports (Melbourne) to deliver stage two of the Melbourne Airport Naarm Way Project, encompassing a road and forecourt works.

This is the second project that CPB Contractors is delivering at Melbourne Airport, having been awarded the Qantas T1 Security and Screening Project in December 2023.

The two projects will generate revenue of approximately $260 million for CPB Contractors.

With passenger numbers at the airport expected to double to nearly 76 million by 2042, these critical works will futureproof landside passenger and freight access, providing a more enjoyable customer experience.

CIMIC Group Executive Chairman Juan Santamaria said: “These upgrades will set a new standard in visitor and customer experience at Melbourne Airport, easing congestion and saving time at both at passenger drop-off and pick-up, and at security screening. The two projects will provide increased capacity and improve efficiency, ensuring the infrastructure will meet the growing passenger needs.”

CPB Contractors Managing Director Jason Spears said: “CPB Contractors looks forward to bringing our extensive aviation expertise and track record delivering complex operational road, transport and pedestrian infrastructure to these projects, all while prioritising security and the overall experience for airport staff, travellers and the wider community.

“Our expert team will continue CPB Contractors’ legacy of providing local employment and training opportunities, with a focus on diversity and inclusion, in addition to maximising the social and economic benefits to the community throughout the procurement process.”

The scope of work for stage two of the Melbourne Airport Road and Forecourt project includes construction of a new 18-metre-wide pedestrian bridge and gateway from the T123 carpark to the terminals, forecourt reconfiguration, a new vertical transport hub, and reconfiguration of the T123 carpark. The project is set for completion in late-2026.
