The Australian and NSW governments are funding a 10 year, $3.6 billion road investment program for western Sydney. The Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan will deliver major road infrastructure upgrades to support an integrated transport solution for the region and capitalise on the economic benefits from developing the Western Sydney Airport. The Plan provides improved road transport capacity ahead of future traffic demand, as planned residential and employment development comes online in western Sydney growth areas and the Western Sydney Employment Area. This work will transform the region’s economy and make western Sydney an even better place to live and do business.
Did you know?
Western Sydney is Australia’s third largest economy and in its own right would be Australia’s fourth largest city. During the next 20 years the region is expected to grow from two million to three million people, which is why the Australian and NSW governments are investing money into significant road infrastructure.
This Plan builds on the Australian and NSW governments’ commitments to encourage positive growth in western Sydney and provide public transport and freight solutions.
