Project information


Sydney Airport and Port Botany are two of Australia's most important international gateways. The roads around the airport and Port Botany are becoming increasingly congested and need to be upgraded.

Sydney Airport has built a new one-way road system through the T2/T3 domestic terminals to improve traffic flow in the airport.

Transport for NSW has reconfigured Robey Street and O'Riordan Street to accommodate upgrades to the Sydney Airport internal road network and help improve traffic flow around the airport.

Key features

The key features of the Airport North precinct proposal include:

  • Converting the southern sections of Robey Street and O'Riordan Street into one-way roads
  • Widening O'Riordan Street to provide six through lanes between Bourke Road and Robey Street
  • Reconfiguring the existing traffic lights on O'Riordan Street between Qantas Drive and Bourke Road
  • Upgrading the footpath on the eastern side of O'Riordan Street.
