Project scope – Whole Project

The Sydney Gateway will provide a high capacity connection from Sydney Airport and Port Botany to the new WestConnex St Peters Interchange once completed.

The project will be delivered in two stages (Stage 1 and Stage 3) and includes:

  • connection to St Peters Interchange via a four-lane road in each direction with two bridges over Alexandra Canal
  • connection to the International Terminal via a four-lane raised road in each direction with bridges to cross Canal Road and the freight rail line
  • an airport freight access route
  • an alternative shared cycle and pedestrian pathway
  • widening of Qantas Drive, and
  • an elevated 'flyover' road to the Domestic terminals.


Stage 2 is the Port Botany Rail Duplication, which is being delivered separately by the Australian Rail Track Corporation.

Further Information

As the project passes through NSW land and Sydney Airport land owned by the Federal Government, the project requires approvals under both NSW and Federal Government legislation.

Public consultation on the project concept design was open 27 May closing 21 June 2019. The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and Major Development Plan (MDP) were combined and placed on public exhibition in late 2019. Submissions on the EIS closed on 19 December 2019. Submissions for MDP will close on 21 February 2020.

In the State Infrastructure Strategy 2018-2038, Infrastructure NSW (INSW) noted that the Sydney Gateway was only partially funded, recommending that the NSW Government finalise the business case for Sydney Gateway by the end of 2018 to enable the NSW and Federal Governments to partner in funding the project.

This followed INSW's 2014 SIS Update, which recommended that a detailed proposal for a Sydney Gateway be developed by strategic landholders and the WestConnex Delivery Authority (Sydney Motorway Corporation).

INSW also noted in their 2014 SIS Update that the capacity of the existing Port Botany rail line would not need duplicating until the mid-2020s.

The Sydney Gateway will provide a high capacity connection from the Airport and Port Botany to the new Westconnex St Peters Interchange once completed.

Stage 1 of the project is expected to comprise a new high capacity four-lane road in each direction connecting the St Peters Interchange with Sydney Airport's International Terminal and Qantas Drive, along with a new airport freight access route. The raised road will require bridges to cross Canal Road, the freight rail line and Alexandra canal, while Qantas Drive will be widened from two to three lanes in each direction.

Pre-Registrations of Interest for stages 1 and 3 opened on 1 July 2019 closing 5 August. Expressions of Interest for both stages were called for later in July 2019.

On 31 October 2019, the NSW Government announced three parties had been shortlisted for design and construction works. The three parties shortlisted were:

  • AirPortConnex, led by Salini Impregilo
  • a John Holland and Seymour Whyte Joint Venture, and
  • CPB Contractors.

 

In March 2020, the Request for Tender was issued for Independent Verifier services for Stage 1 and Stage 3 of the Project. A single tender was sought to provide services with respect to both stages. The RFT closed on 31 March 2020.

In Nov 2020, the NSW Government awarded the design and construction contract for the Sydney Gateway road project to the John Holland – Seymour Whyte Joint Venture.

NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) expects construction to commence in 2021 and be completed by 2024.
