Updates and announcements

All major work is now complete and we have removed our site compounds from the area. We would like to thank residents and commuters for their patience during this important work.

Project background

The NSW government delivered the Airport West project, which involved widening Marsh Street, Arncliffe to three lanes westbound.

Marsh Street is the primary connection to the Sydney Airport international terminal and is a key access point for the M5 Motorway and Sydney’s southern suburbs.

The Airport West project is part of a suite of upgrades which complement Sydney Airport’s upgrades to the internal airport road network.

Key features

  • widening Marsh Street to three lanes westbound between the Giovanni Brunetti Bridge and the M5 interchange, providing three lanes in both directions
  • a dedicated cycleway on the southern side of Marsh Street to connect the existing path on the bridge to the Eve Street cycleway
  • a pedestrian crossing at the intersection of Marsh Street and Flora Street
  • widening of the existing eastbound and westbound lanes to provide wider, safer lanes for motorists.

Review of environmental factors

A Review of Environmental Factors (REF) was prepared for the widening of Marsh Street. The REF assessed the project against relevant NSW legislation and other environmental planning requirements. It also identified all environmental impacts associated with the work and outlined mitigation measures to minimise the impacts.

Addendum to the review of environmental factors

In early 2015 we prepared a Review of Environmental Factors (REF) to identify, assess, reduce and manage the potential impacts of the project. Further developing the detailed design of the project has created some new and modified project features. An addendum to the REF was prepared to assess these features.
