Western Sydney's future transport corridors to be preserved
The NSW Government has released draft corridors for four major future road and rail infrastructure corridors which will help establish the Western Sydney Parkland City.
These transport links will improve access for freight and logistics companies and connect to the future Western Sydney Aerotropolis, an urban centre adjacent to the airport planned to bring advanced manufacturing, research, medical, education and commercial facilities, to bring new investment and attract high-value jobs to the region.
The four corridors are:
- the north-south rail corridor, which will connect Western Sydney Airport with the existing Sydney train network
- the Outer Sydney Orbital road and rail freight corridor
- a Western Sydney freight connection
- a new road connection from the M7 to the Bells Line of Road.
Transport for NSW is seeking feedback by Friday 18 May 2018 to refine the recommended corridors and inform technical investigations.
Minister for Western Sydney Stuart Ayres said Western Sydney is at the forefront of the biggest infrastructure delivery program in history.
“The release of these corridors marks one of the first steps in delivery of the City Deal which will realise the aspiration of a 30-minute city for Western Sydney, bringing people closer to jobs, education and homes and improve access for freight and logistics vehicles.”
