CPB Contractors, a member of CIMIC Group, has been selected by Australia Pacific Airports (Melbourne) to deliver stage two of the Melbourne Airport Naarm Way Project.

This marks CPB Contractors’ second project at Melbourne Airport, having been awarded the Qantas T1 Security and Screening Project in December 2023. Together, these projects are expected to generate approximately $260 million in revenue for CPB Contractors.

With passenger numbers at Melbourne Airport projected to double to nearly 76 million by 2042, these critical works will future-proof landside passenger and freight access, providing a more enjoyable customer experience.

Juan Santamaria, executive chairman of CIMIC Group, highlighted that these upgrades will enhance the visitor and customer experience at Melbourne Airport, aiming to reduce congestion and streamline processes at passenger drop-off, pick-up and security screening areas.

“The two projects will provide increased capacity and improve efficiency, ensuring the infrastructure will meet the growing passenger needs,” said Santamaria.
