Western Sydney Airport

The Australian Government has announced that Badgerys Creek will be the site for a Western Sydney Airport.

The Government is strongly committed to the Western Sydney region, where a new airport would be a major generator of economic activity—providing employment opportunities closer to where people in Western Sydney live.

In the early 2030s, the proposed airport is expected to generate nearly 9,000 direct jobs, with around 6,900 indirect jobs in the surrounding area. As the airport grows, more jobs will be generated. By 2063, there will be approximately 60,000 direct jobs.

Road projects under the $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan are well underway. This major programme of road projects will connect the proposed Western Sydney Airport to Sydney's road network.
