Delivering the airport
The Australian Government is delivering the Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek via a government-owned company, called WSA Co. The Government has committed up to $5.3 billion to deliver the airport.
The company was formally established on 7 August 2017, with an experienced board, chaired by Mr Paul O'Sullivan. Mr O'Sullivan is joined by six directors on the Board and a high-quality management team will soon be appointed.
Construction of the airport has now commenced. Throughout the construction phase, WSA Co will contract expertise from the private sector construction market.
While WSA Co is responsible for building the airport, the Department will continue its regulatory oversight of the project, ensure compliance with conditions in the Airport Plan, and coordinate the flight path design process.
