Western Sydney Freight Line corridor identification

Reviewed

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 Western Sydney Freight Line between M7 Motorway and the planned Outer Sydney Orbital’s freight rail corridor near Luddenham.

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 future freight rail line corridor would:

  • Provide for a freight rail connection between Port Botany and Western Sydney via the Southern Sydney Freight Line.
  • Support the movement of container and bulk freight by rail across Greater Sydney.
  • Provide for freight rail connections to serve employment lands and future industries across the Western Sydney Airport Growth Area.

Feedback open

Project status

Transport for NSW is now seeking feedback on the recommended freight rail corridor between the M7 Motorway and the planned Outer Sydney Orbital’s freight rail 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 future Western Sydney Freight Line corridor would extend from the existing Southern Sydney Freight Line at Leightonfield near Villawood to the planned Outer Sydney Orbital’s freight rail corridor near Luddenham.

At this stage, a recommended Western Sydney Freight Line corridor has been identified between the M7 Motorway and the planned Outer Sydney Orbital’s freight rail corridor near Luddenham.

More investigation is needed before we can identify a recommended corridor of land between the existing Southern Sydney Freight Line between Leightonfield and the M7 Motorway.
