Auckland Airport awards $200M contract

Two construction contracts have been awarded at Melbourne Airport, which form the broader Northern Precinct Program to reconfigure existing taxiways and the apron layout.

Auckland Airport has selected a contractor to deliver Stage Two of its NZ$221 million ($209.8 million) Taxiway Mike and Remote Stands project.

CPB Contractors will build a new taxiway, extend an existing taxiway and deliver six remote stands with in-ground jet fuel reticulation as part of the capital works program.

Auckland Airport, New Zealand’s largest and busiest airport, is undertaking the upgrade to expand its capacity further.

Works will include 900,000 cubic metres of earthworks, laying 130,000 cubic metres of aggregate basecourse, 168,000 square metres of concrete pavement, building 3200 metres of storm water drainage system, runoff and treatment lagoon, and a 2200 metres in-ground jet fuel network.

CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer, Michael Wright, said New Zealand remains an important focus for the Group as it expands its delivery of infrastructure.
