Outer Sydney Orbital corridor identification


Project overview

Consultation period has now been extended. Feedback will be received until 1 June 2018.

Transport for NSW is consulting on a recommended corridor of land for the Outer Sydney Orbital for a possible future motorway and freight rail line.

Transport for NSW is now seeking feedback on each of the corridors. The consultation period has been extended, and feedback will be received until 1 June 2018.

Key benefits

A motorway and freight rail line corridor would:

  • Provide for a major transport link between the North West and South West Growth Areas, connecting with the planned Western Sydney Airport and future employment lands.
  • Support growing communities, businesses and the creation of new jobs in Western Sydney.  
  • Allow for freight to move efficiently and safely by rail.

Project status

Transport for NSW is now seeking feedback on the recommended corridor by 1 June 2018.

Feedback from the consultation will help to refine the recommended corridor and inform technical investigations. Once land is identified we need to ensure it is protected from future development so the transport infrastructure can be built when it is needed.

Corridor profile

The NSW Government is planning for the long term transport needs of Western Sydney by identifying and protecting a corridor of land for future transport infrastructure.

The Outer Sydney Orbital corridor will provide for a connection between Box Hill in the north and the Hume Motorway near Menangle in the south.

In the future, there will be further investigations to connect the Illawarra and the Central Coast.
