The Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan is a 10 year programme of works delivering new and upgraded roads in Western Sydney.
As part of this program the M12 Motorway will provide direct access to the planned Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek and will connect to Sydney’s motorway network.
The preferred route is a 16 kilometre east-west (four-lane) motorway between the M7 Motorway and The Northern Road, providing increased road capacity and reducing congestion and travel times. It would also improve the movement of freight in and through Western Sydney and is expected to serve the Western Sydney Priority Land Release Area and the Western Sydney Employment Area.
A 300 metre wide corridor has been identified for the M12, however the final motorway width is expected to be around 100-150 metres with provision for widening the motorway to six-lanes. The preliminary road design is expected to be released for public display in the second half of 2017.
In July 2017, an Arcadis and Jacobs Joint Venture were appointed lead concept designer for the M12, which involves providing the concept designs, and undertaking the Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA).
Construction is expected to start in 2020 and be completed before the opening of Western Sydney Airport.
$21 million was allocated towards planning the M12 in the 2017-18 NSW Budget.
The Federal Government is providing $997 million, with the remaining $249 million coming from the NSW Government.
