Expressions of interest are now open for the $2.6 billion Sydney Gateway project, after reaching an agreement with the Sydney Airport Corporation late last year.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said Sydney Gateway was a piece of city-shaping infrastructure that would make access to Sydney Airport and Port Botany quicker and easier.
“The delivery of the toll-free Sydney Gateway will be a massive improvement to the way motorists travel to Sydney Airport, and take around 10,000 heavy vehicles off local streets in Mascot every day as they travel to Port Botany,” Berejiklian said.

The project includes the construction of a new motorway connection between the New M5 Interchange at St Peters and the Airport and Port precinct, the relocation and reconfiguration of Airport Drive, major upgrades to Qantas Drive and Joyce Drive, and the duplication of the Port Botany Freight Rail Line to increase freight rail capacity to Australia’s largest container port.
Roads Minister Andrew Constance said Sydney Gateway would include a dedicated flyover to the front door of the domestic airport terminal.
“There will be further time savings from Parramatta, Dee Why, Moorebank and Campbelltown and relief to Southern Cross Drive, King Georges Road and the M5 East tunnel,” Constance said.
