Seymour Whyte, a VINCI Construction subsidiary in Australia, has been awarded a construction contract worth A$159m (€96m) by Australia Pacific Airports (Melbourne)

This project, designed to improve access to the airport, includes the redevelopment of the airport forecourt and the construction of a 550m bridge across 18 spans. The bridge will separate public and commercial vehicle traffic, providing a smoother connection between the Tullamarine Freeway and all Melbourne Airport terminals. It will also make pedestrian traffic safer, VINCI said.

The works – which will be completed in 2026 – include environmental sustainability targets such as reusing all excavated fill.

The project is a continuation of the first phase of the works carried out by Seymour Whyte in 2023.
