Western Sydney International welcomes new Metro connection

01 June 2020

Western Sydney International has welcomed the announcement by the Australian and NSW Governments that work will start this year to ensure the Airport is connected by rail.

Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport will be connected to Sydney’s rail network via the new Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport, set to open in time for the Airport’s first flight.

Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport will have two stations on the Airport site, with a station at the Airport’s integrated international and domestic terminal as well as the on-airport business park, connecting passengers to St Marys in the north, as well as Orchard Hills, Luddenham and the Aerotropolis. 

Western Sydney Airport Chair Paul O’Sullivan said construction of the Airport and its supporting road and rail projects was now set to inject $20 billion worth of new infrastructure into the Western Sydney region.

“Western Sydney International is a once-in-a-generation project that is already proving to be the catalyst for the transformation of Western Sydney,” Mr O’Sullivan said.

“Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport will not only ensure that the Airport is connected to the city’s rail network, it will complement the Airport’s ability to create economic growth and opportunities for the region, creating jobs for the people of Western Sydney and providing new ways for people to get around.

“The new toll-free M12 Motorway will also ensure the Airport is directly connected to Sydney’s motorway network, giving passengers choice about how they want to arrive to Sydney’s new airport.

“For the first time in Sydney, Western Sydney International will provide airlines and passengers with a choice about which airport they want to use.”

Western Sydney International will open to international, domestic and freight flights in 2026, initially catering for up to 10 million passengers per year.
