Sydney launches public consultation for future transport corridors

The NSW Government has released draft corridors for four major future road and rail infrastructure corridors which will help establish the Western Sydney Parkland City. Minister for Western Sydney Stuart Ayres and Minister for Roads Melinda Pavey invited the community to offer input on the proposed alignments of 192 kilometres of corridors to be preserved for future road and rail projects. The future rail and road corridors needed for Western Sydney will be delivered over the short, medium and long term.

Under the plans, the Government will preserve land for the future north-south rail corridor, which will connect Western Sydney Airport with the existing Sydney train network; the Outer Sydney Orbital road and rail freight corridor; a Western Sydney freight connection; and a new road connection from the M7 to the Bells Line of Road.

“Western Sydney is at the forefront of the biggest infrastructure delivery program in history and for once, we are in the fortunate position of being able to plan and deliver the roads and rail lines this future city needs, first. … The release of these corridors marks one of the first steps in delivery of the City Deal, which will realise the aspiration of a 30-minute city for Western Sydney, bringing people closer to jobs, education, and homes and improve access for freight and logistics vehicles,” Minister Stuart Ayres said.
