Corridor projects

The NSW Government is planning for the long-term transport needs of Western Sydney by identifying and protecting corridors of land that can be used to deliver transport infrastructure when needed in the future.

Community consultation on four corridors was held between 26 March and 1 June 2018 to give residents and businesses the opportunity to help shape the corridors. 

More than 6,000 submissions have been received, thousands of comments left on the project’s online map and attendance has been strong at community drop-in sessions and one-to-one meetings.

Transport for NSW has been monitoring feedback throughout the consultation period. To provide certainty to communities and enable people to make decisions about their homes and businesses.

Community feedback has helped inform the following changes

  • Continue with the previously gazetted 1951 corridor for the Bells Line of Road Castlereagh Connection 
  • Relinquish the section of previously exhibited Bells Line of Road corridor from Castlereagh to Kurrajong Heights.
  • Provide for a future tunnel of approximately 10 kilometres from north of Cobbitty Road, Cobbitty to south-east of Cawdor Road, Cawdor to minimise the impact of the Outer Sydney Orbital on communities at Cobbitty, Brownlow Hill, Grasmere and Ellis Lane.

  • Relinquish the section of the Outer Sydney Orbital north of Richmond Road while continuing to work with the Department of Planning and Environment and local councils on future options, with a view of mitigating any further impact on homes.

Next steps

The Government will not gazette the remaining corridors until further refinements of the alignment are considered with affected property owners and communities.
