The project scope involved the installation of a new critical section of Sydney Water pipeline during the RMS upgrade of The Northern Road (Stage 2) by Lendlease.
Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) implemented a program of works to upgrade 34 kilometres of The Northern Road, between Narellan and Penrith. The upgrade formed part of the joint NSW and Commonwealth Government's $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan to upgrade road infrastructure in western Sydney over ten years.
This total project was assessed as Critical State Significant Infrastructure (CSSI) meaning the Minister for Planning had determined that it is essential to the State. Our involvement was crucial to meet the construction timeline for Sydney Water's scheduled shutdown of the existing pipe and subsequent cut-in and connection to the new system, concurrent with construction of the roadway segment.
