MySydney > Eastern Harbour City
Stretching from Hornsby in the north, through the CBD, Inner West and Sydney Airport precinct to Sutherland in the south, the Eastern Harbour City is Australia’s financial heart and gateway to the world.
Millions of people live and work in this bustling metropolis, travelling to workplaces by road, public transport and active transport.
Major city-shaping projects are underway in the Eastern Harbour City to boost capacity and enhance the city’s connections, competitiveness and global appeal.
Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project with services now running on the Metro North West line between Tallawong and Chatswood. By 2024, the City & Southwest line will extend under Sydney Harbour, through new underground stations in the CBD and beyond to the south west.
The CBD & South East Light Rail connects the CBD to the Randwick health and education precinct. We’re also extending the bike network to make it easier for people of all ages and abilities to get around in a healthy and sustainable way.
We’re getting on with the job of building Sydney’s motorway network, including:
- The Western Harbour Tunnel, which will stretch 6.5km and connect the Warringah Freeway at North Sydney with the Rozelle Interchange, the M4 and the M5 via a tunnel beneath Sydney Harbour.
- The Warringah Freeway Upgrade, which will renovate 4km of the freeway to provide connections for the Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link.
- Sydney Gateway, a toll free connection to Sydney Airport’s Domestic and International terminals and providing a new route for 10,000 trucks a day.
- Easing Sydney's Congestion, a broad program of vital works across the city that will significantly reduce Sydney's congestion.
As more transport options are added to Sydney’s established radial rail network, extensive bus network, and Inner West Light Rail, commuters are gaining more choices for their journey in and around the city.
The Eastern Harbour City is growing with demand for more than 150,000 dwellings over the next 20 years. Transport will be a vital piece of the growth puzzle with a focus on integration, walkable places and active transport infrastructure.
