Sydney Gateway is a new toll-free connection due for completion in late 2024.

The project is made up of a collection of roads, bridges and pedestrian and cyclist connections that benefit our road users and local communities.

There are new traffic changes in place near the International and Domestic Terminals, changing how you move around the Airport Precinct:

  • The first of two Twin Arch Bridges over the Alexandra Canal opened to traffic
  • The 800-metre-long Deborah Lawrie flyover from Qantas Drive into the Domestic Terminals opened to traffic.
  • The existing Airport Drive has closed. Road users in both directions will be directed onto the new Twin Arch Bridge and will no longer use the existing Airport Drive. Vehicles travelling on Qantas Drive towards the International Terminal and the M5 will use the new road connection.
  • Trucks travelling in both directions can access Sydney Airport’s international freight terminal from the new Link Road connection towards the Twin Arch Bridges. This traffic change is necessary to allow ongoing work on the second Twin Arch Bridge, which is expected to open to westbound traffic in mid-2024.

The opening of the new Airport Drive is another key Sydney Gateway milestone as we build towards finishing this major road infrastructure project this year.

 Sydney Gateway construction is over 80% complete, with work continuing on more new roads that will transform the way people travel to and from the Sydney Airport precinct.

We understand the importance of maintaining access to the Airport Precinct and will continue to minimise impacts as much as possible.
