A seamless trip to and from Sydney Airport is closer than ever with the proposed Sydney Gateway project moving to the next stage of the planning process.

The community can have their say on the project with the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and draft Major Development Plan (MDP) now on public exhibition.

Minister for Transport and Roads Andrew Constance said the NSW Government is focused on completing the motorway network’s missing links to keep Sydney moving.

“The toll-free Sydney Gateway will improve connections to Sydney Airport and Port Botany with the CBD and beyond,” Mr Constance said.

“The new roads will have capacity to carry 100,000 vehicles a day, which will cater for growth to support our communities and economy, while enabling people and goods to move more safely and reliably.

“Sydney Gateway will provide a new route for around 10,000 trucks a day. This will help remove trucks from Mascot, reduce travel times and congestion, and return local streets to the community.

“This project will improve public transport to and from the Airport by providing faster and more direct access for buses, giving people freedom to choose how they move.”

Community can make a submission on the EIS at the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s planning portal website. Submissions on the draft MDP, which is a Commonwealth requirement, will be managed by Sydney Airport.
