Western Sydney Airport Precinct
Transport for NSW is playing a critical role in creating access to, from and within the Airport Precinct and surrounding areas, providing integrated travel choices for our customers and local communities, enabling industry to create jobs, and connecting the region to the Western Parkland City, Greater Sydney and beyond.
By 2056, the areas surrounding the Airport will be home to two million people, which will become a thriving economic hub of the Western Parkland City.
New and better jobs will be created over the coming decades, unlocking opportunities for local people across aerospace and defence, manufacturing, healthcare, freight and logistics, agribusiness, education, and research industries.
The Airport Precinct will be a green, connected, and advanced city, attracting quality jobs, tourism and investment to the Western Parkland region, and we’re committed to building a transport system to enable this growth.
We have an enormous task at hand over the next 30 years and beyond. So, we’re proactively working alongside our Australian Government, state and local government partners, as well as industry and developers, to maximise this once in a generation legacy for the people of Western Sydney.
There’s a significant amount of work underway to prepare for the opening
of the Western Sydney International Airport in 2026 and to provide access to the Airport Precinct and surrounding areas. This includes:
- Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan – the M12 Motorway (open 2026)
- Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport (open 2026)
- Elizabeth Drive safety and access improvements – in development
- Local and Rapid bus connections – in development.
We’re now prioritising the next phase of critical infrastructure and services required for 2026, including activating the local bus network and preserving road safety and access to keep up with the scale of growth and construction.
There will be continued disruption to our local communities, and it won’t be easy, but we’re committed to building a safe, sustainable and integrated transport network for the people of Western Sydney.
