Construction of Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport is underway and on track to begin operations in 2026. The airport is a transformational infrastructure project that will generate economic activity and meet Sydney’s growing aviation needs. The airport will be a full service airport operating curfew free, delivering international, domestic and freight services.

AeroWest JV, comprising of BMD Constructions and Seymour Whyte Constructions, was awarded the Landside Civil and Building (LCB) Works Design & Construct Contract in December 2021.
