Your chance to help deliver Australia’s biggest infrastructure project 

We are creating opportunities for Australian businesses and people to get involved in the delivery of WestConnex. The project will generate about 10,000 jobs directly and indirectly, including hundreds of opportunities for apprentices and trainees.

Procurement of major contracts is complete for:

  • WestConnex M4 Widening
  • WestConnex M4 East
  • King Georges Road Interchange Upgrade
  • WestConnex New M5.

Upcoming opportunities

The M4-M5 Link will be delivered in two stages. Sydney Motorway Corporation is inviting suitable organisations to register to participate in the Expression of Interest process for the design and construction of Package 1: Main Tunnel Works (EOI Process).

This registration for the EOI Process is for the design and construction of the M4-M5 Link - Main Tunnel Works package only, which will be delivered under a lump sum Design and Construct (D&C) contract.

The Invitation for Expressions of Interest will only be released to organisations that have registered in accordance with the requirements specified in the attached document titled “SMC - WestConnex - M4-M5 Link - Main Tunnel Works Registration for EOI”, to the satisfaction of SMC.

SMC will accept receipt of registration for EOI documents (completed Registration Form and executed Process Deed Poll) until 12pm on Wednesday 30 November 2016.

The tender process for the M4–M5 Link Package 2: Rozelle Interchange is expected to start in mid 2017. To express interest in this process, subscribe here.

Subcontracting opportunities

There are still many opportunities for Australian companies to participate in building and designing WestConnex as sub-contractors and suppliers. Our principal contractors require a range of services and products to deliver the project.

Procurement requirements and design and construction standards 

At least one contracting entity tendering on major WestConnex contracts must be prequalified to each of the applicable National Prequalification Scheme categories (road, bridge and financial).

This also includes nomination of sub-contractors in key goods supply services (including asphalt paving, concrete paving, steel fabrication) to applicable prequalified categories. 

Well-established design and construction specifications are used to design and construct WestConnex, primarily developed by Roads and Maritime Services. These specifications are regularly used on NSW transport projects. Specifications generally reflect the applicable Australian Standards or equivalent International Standard. For further information on prequalification, visit the Roads and Maritime Services website

When we advertise and publish new opportunities, we also include:

  • A description of the tender with prequalification requirements
  • Location
  • Compliance requirements to relevant procurement codes of practice
  • Procurement process (for example, Expression of Interest, Request for Tender, shortlisting)
