Outer Sydney Orbital Stage 2 corridor identification

Reviewed

Project overview

The Outer Sydney Orbital Stage 2 corridor investigation is identifying long-term transport connections between Western Sydney and the Illawarra-Shoalhaven region.

Investigations for the Outer Sydney Orbital Stage 2 will be undertaken in three sectors:

Sector 1: between the Hume Motorway and Appin Road, south east of Appin Village and between the Hume Motorway and Picton Road.

Sector 2: Appin and Picton Road corridors for potential upgrade through WaterNSW’s water catchment area (Metropolitan Special Area).

Sector 3: Illawarra Connections – a potential new Illawarra Escarpment crossing.
