Expressions of interest are now open for construction of the Sydney Gateway project, a city-shaping piece of infrastructure that will make access to Sydney Airport and Port Botany quicker and easier.
The toll-free Sydney Gateway will deliver major new connections from Sydney Airport’s Domestic and International terminals to the Sydney motorway network at St Peters Interchange.
In addition to improving the way motorists travel to the airport, Sydney Gateway will also take around 10,000 heavy vehicles off local streets in Mascot every day as they travel to Port Botany.
The project will include a major flyover to the front door of the domestic terminal.
Once complete, motorists travelling from Parramatta to the domestic terminal will bypass 26 sets of traffic lights, with further time savings from Dee Why, Moorebank and Campbelltown, and relief to Southern Cross Drive, King Georges Road and the M5 East tunnel.
The successful private sector bidder chosen through the expressions of interest process will construct Sydney Gateway, but it will be toll-free.
Sydney Gateway will save up to 40 minutes on a trip from Parramatta to the domestic terminal, 30 minutes from Haberfield, 22 minutes from Bankstown or Campbelltown, and 19 minutes from Rozelle.
It will save up to 36 minutes on a trip from Eastern Creek to Port Botany, 30 minutes from Silverwater, and 20 minutes from Moorebank or Wetherill Park.
