Eastern Distributor (Airport Motorway Limited)

New South Wales

When construction of the Eastern Distributor motorway, a 6km link from the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Sydney’s Airport was completed in 2000, Ventia commenced a 47-year contract for the operations and maintenance of the motorway, which includes a 1.7km tunnel.

Under the contract, Ventia is responsible for the maintenance and asset management of all elements of the motorway, including pavements, structures, mechanical ventilation, intelligent transport infrastructure and other associated elements.

Ventia maintains critical infrastructure and fire safety systems in the tunnel, ensuring in the event of a major incident they are best placed to respond and deliver the safest possible environment for motorists, employees and the community alike.
