Sydney Water has budgeted AU$2.2 billion for total infrastructure projects over the next four years, providing the foundation for growth in the Harbour City.
The money will go towards a number of important infrastructure projects in the City, including the construction of a AU$27 million wastewater pumping station at Oran Park, which will allow for 7,000 new homes to be built in southwest Sydney.
It also recently completed wastewater infrastructure projects in nearby Leppington and Austral, allowing for the construction of a further 12,000 new dwellings to be constructed in the area.
Sydney Water General Manager Liveable City Solutions Paul Higham said “Sydney Water’s infrastructure projects provide the foundation and investment to allow for the growth of Sydney.
“We are helping to fulfil the dream for thousands of extra families to own a home in Sydney, one of the world’s most liveable cities.
“The next two years of the infrastructure program includes some significant growth projects to support expansion in the northwest and southwest growth areas.”
Delivery Manager Mark Simister said “The AU$2.2 billion total will be phased, resulting in annual reductions from AU$598 million in 2016/17 to AU$473 million in 2019/20.
“The drop is driven by a combination of reduced levels of work in some sectors and greater efficiency in delivery and procurement.
“We have adopted a new approach to procure planning, design and specialist services, commencing with market sounding in August 2016, to ensure a fair and diligent process which secures the best outcome for our customers.
“We’re looking forward to partnering with the best of industry to deliver these important infrastructure projects to drive the growth of our city.”
