Project Description
The Sydney Airport and Port Botany precinct is a key contributor to the NSW and Australian economy and home to Australia’s busiest airport and second busiest container port. The precinct is heavily constrained with substantial road congestion and rail inefficiencies that potentially impact the NSW and Australian economy. Sydney Gateway will link the WestConnex St Peters Interchange to Sydney Airport, improving road connectivity to Port Botany and supporting the competitiveness of these strategic centers. Sydney Gateway will also involve the duplication of three kilometers of the Port Botany rail freight line.. This integrated freight rail and road program will expand capacity and improve connections to the ports, to assist with management of growth in air passengers, freight and employee traffic movements across the region. The Port Botany rail duplication component of the program will support the freight growth projections and the shift in freight from road to rail. Road: Provide a new route to the domestic and international airport terminals from the WestConnex Motorway at St Peters Interchange. The program includes improvements to the arterial road network to improve access to the domestic terminals. New and reconfigured roads will work together to streamline traffic between the ports and wider Sydney. Construction planned to commence in 2020 and be complete in 2023. Rail: Duplicate a three kilometer section of the Port of Botany freight rail line to increase capacity and improve service reliability. This will help increase the proportion of freight transported by rail, reduce trucks on local roads and provide efficient links between the sea port and the freight intermodal terminals. Construction planned to commence 2020 and be complete in 2023.
