Sydney West

Roads and Maritime Services is working to plan and build the new and upgraded major arterial roads that will ensure western Sydney's population meets the growth ahead.

Western Sydney covers almost 9,000 square kilometres and houses a population of about two million people. With Sydney's population predicted to increase by around 1.6 million people in the next 20 years, western Sydney faces unprecedented growth as about one million people choose to live in the region by 2031.

Right now, more than 845,000 journeys to work start and end in western Sydney and 64% of those are by car.

That's why it's vital to ensure our road infrastructure supports transport connections, moves freight, eases congestion, provides more reliable travel times and makes roads safer.

The Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan

The 10-year, $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan is providing improved road transport capacity ahead of future traffic demand and is a catalyst for significant employment and residential development in western Sydney and the Broader Western Sydney Employment Area.

As part of the Plan, the Australian Government is also investing $200 million in a Local Roads Package, enabling western Sydney councils to deliver improved road connections to support the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan. 

There are also a range of other major road projects across western Sydney:
