Western Sydney fuel pipeline
We are undertaking preliminary work to identify route options for a fuel pipeline corridor to Western Sydney Airport and surrounds.
- Transport for NSW have commissioned research to determine the most effective and sustainable approach in delivering the pipeline, while minimising the impact of construction on the community and the environment.
- Community consultation will be undertaken when more details are known.
By 2031 the Western Parkland City will be home to more than half of Sydney’s population. At the centre of this growth is the Western Sydney (Nancy-Bird Walton) International Airport and surrounding Aerotropolis.
To ensure successful operations of the airport, it is essential to establish an efficient fuel supply to the area. Transport for NSW is working with other agencies and local government to investigate a fuel pipeline corridor which will service the Western Parkland City, the new Airport and Aerotropolis. A dedicated fuel pipeline will help reduce trucks on local roads thereby easing congestion and help improve road safety.
Research is being conducted to determine the most effective and sustainable approach in delivering the pipeline, while minimising the impact of future construction on the community and the environment. Community consultation will be undertaken once details of the project have been determined.
Transport for NSW is applying a whole of government approach to the project, to identify route options for the pipeline.
The NSW Government will coordinate an Expression of Interest to fuel supply firms for the supply of fuel services once corridor alignments have been confirmed.
