Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services is working closely with Sydney Airport as it finishes work to widen and improve Qantas Drive around the entrance and exit to the Domestic Terminal. Sydney Airport is due to finish this work in early October.

To ensure the upgraded Qantas Drive integrates smoothly into the surrounding road network, Roads and Maritime will carry out early work on the Airport North project at the western end of Robey Street and the southern end of O’Riordan Street. At the end of this work, traffic arrangements in this area will change.

Project background

Sydney Airport and Port Botany are two of Australia’s most important international gateways. The roads around the airport and Port Botany are becoming increasingly congested and need to be upgraded.

Sydney Airport is building a new one-way road system through the T2/T3 domestic terminals to improve traffic flow in the airport.

Roads and Maritime Services is planning to reconfigure Robey Street and O’Riordan Street to accommodate upgrades to the Sydney Airport internal road network and help improve traffic flow around the airport.

Key features

The key features of the Airport North precinct proposal include:

  • Converting the southern sections of Robey Street and O’Riordan Street into one-way roads
  • Widening O’Riordan Street to provide six through lanes between Bourke Road and Robey Street
  • Reconfiguring the existing traffic lights on O’Riordan Street between Qantas Drive and Bourke Road
  • Upgrading the footpath on the eastern side of O’Riordan Street.
