Webuild outlines plans in Australia
By Catrin Jones10 November 2022
Webuild, as part of the Parklife Metro consortium, has been selected as the preferred proponent for the Stations, Systems, Trains, Operations and Maintenance (SSTOM) Package of the Sydney Metro - Western Sydney Airport Project in Australia.
The Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport line will service Greater Western Sydney and the new Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport.
It has been reported that the Australian and NSW governments are jointly delivering the 23 km metro railway and six stations between St Marys and the Western Sydney Aerotropolis, including two stations at the airport, with a shared objective of having Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport operational when Western Sydney International airport opens for passenger services.
Italy-based Webuild has also announced that it has reached a conditional agreement to acquire the entire share capital of the Australian company Clough Limited (“Clough”).
The company provides sustainable and innovative solutions in the design, construction, and maintenance of plants and infrastructure in the energy, resources, and infrastructure sectors. Its landmark projects include the first high-rise in Perth and the first major underground freeway tunnel in Western Australia.
Webuild says that they will support Clough’s financial reorganisation with the aim of turning it into the Group’s platform in Australia.
