Early earthworks

Early earthworks will help lay the foundations for the construction of the airport, and includes:

  • The delivery of earthmoving equipment and establishment of site offices
  • Moving 1.8 million cubic metres of earth within a prescribed area of the site
  • Construction of a new and realigned Badgerys Creek Road
  • A new intersection at Elizabeth Drive, in collaboration with Roads and Maritime Services.

Early earthworks is being carried out by the CPB Contractors and Lend Lease Joint Venture (CPBLL JV) and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.

Site compound
A site compound, internal fences and accessway are being set up at the northern end of Badgerys Creek Road, next to Elizabeth Drive Badgerys Creek.

To safely access the compound, a temporary roundabout and access points will be constructed on Badgerys Creek Road. Preliminary site investigations are being done along the road to finalise the design for this work.

To keep you and our workers safe we’ll have traffic control, management measures in place while we are working. When we have completed our investigations, we will finalise the design and carry out the work.

Preparation for main earthworks
The early earthworks site is split by Badgerys Creek Road and bordered by Elizabeth Drive and Badgerys Creek. It is being prepared and cleared for work, which includes the following activities:

  • site investigations and remediation,
  • existing service identification
  • removing topsoil and vegetation
  • stockpile management; and
  • improvement work such as creating internal haul roads.

Main earthworks
Main earthworks will begin once the site has been prepared.
