Leighton wins Melbourne Airport contract
By Sarah Ann McCay01 October 2013
Australian contractor Leighton is to begin work this month on the construction of a new airline terminal and integrated transport facility at Melbourne Airport after being awarded an AU$ 370 million (US$ 350 million) contract by Australian Pacific Airports (Melbourne).
The integrated transport facility work will include the construction of a seven-storey car park, elevated access roads and ramps, an underground service tunnel, electrical substation and ancillary infrastructure.
The new Terminal 4 development includes baggage handling and re-claim facilities, check-in kiosks and associated infrastructure, staff amenities, retail areas and connections to existing concourses.
Leighton will deliver the new Terminal 4 in a joint venture with its subsidiary Broad Construction. Earlier this year, Broad Construction delivered upgrade works at Perth Airport, including the new Terminal 2.
Work on Melbourne Airport is scheduled for completion in 2015.
