Gateway WA Project
Gateway WA invited MJB Industries to tender for the drainage requirements on the Gateway WA Project; the Gateway WA Consortium has been confirmed by Main Roads as the alliance partner to deliver the $1 billion dollar Gateway WA Perth Airport and Freight Access Project on behalf of the Australian and Western Australian Governments.
The Gateway WA Consortium, comprising Leighton Contractors, Georgiou, GHD, AECOM and BG&E signed the Alliance Agreement in Perth, Western Australia on 9 November 2012, following successful negotiations after being announced preferred proponent in October.
The iconic Gateway WA: Perth Airport and Freight Access Project is the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken by Main Roads WA.
Driven by the expected doubling of passenger air travel and the road freight task over the next decade, coupled with proposed consolidation of the Perth airport terminals, this billion-dollar project involves a major upgrade to the road network surrounding Perth Airport and the freight and industrial hubs of Kewdale and Forrestfield.
It focuses primarily on Tonkin Highway, between Great Eastern Highway and Roe Highway, and Leach Highway, between Orrong Road and Perth Airport.
This area is arguably Western Australia’s most important transport interchange, where road, rail and air services meet to facilitate the movement of people and goods that are essential to the economy of both the state and the nation.
