CPBJH JV brings together two of Australia's leading construction partners, CPB Contractors and John Holland, with unparalleled expertise in large-scale and complex project management, civil construction, traffic management and tunnelling. 

The West Gate Tunnel is a partnership between the Victorian Government and Transurban. The Joint Venture has been chosen as the contractor for construction, which began in early 2018 following planning assessment. 

About the Project

The West Gate Tunnel Project is a city-shaping project that will deliver a vital alternative to the West Gate Bridge, provide quicker and safer journeys, and remove thousands of trucks off residential streets. The project will include:

  • Widening the West Gate Freeway from eight lanes to 12 between the M80 Ring Road and Williamstown Road;
  • Building a 2.8km eastbound tunnel and a 4km westbound tunnel under Yarraville;
  • Constructing a bridge over the Maribyrnong River providing an alternative to the West Gate Bridge;
  • Constructing an elevated road along Footscray Road to the Port of Melbourne; and
  • Major new cycling and pedestrian paths. 

Diversity and inclusion

We aim to maximise the potential of all our people. This means having an inclusive culture that values and sustains diversity and a work-life balance. To achieve this, we are focused on:

  • Embedding flexible work practices
  • Providing development opportunities for our women
  • Leaders championing and supporting our females to succeed
  • Actively looking to attract and promote women into non- traditional roles and putting support structures in place to help them succeed.

WGTP launched a ‘West Gate Women in Construction’ initiative to actively promote, support and recognise female participation on the project.

  • Coordinate design development in accordance with the agreed design workflows, working closely with internal multidisciplinary teams and external stakeholders
  • Actively drive timely resolution of key technical matters
  • Manage design queries and design change as may arise from time to time
  • Manage the performance of external design partners within the discipline including their deliverables, costs and time frames


  • Ideal candidate will have 5-10 years’ in technical management roles on large transport infrastructure projects, preferably in the Construction industry.
  • You will demonstrate strong technical knowledge, sound appreciation of commercial drivers and excellent communication skills
