Port Botany–Sydney Airport Precinct

The Port Botany-Sydney Airport Precinct is one of Australia's most important international gateways encompassing the country's largest international airport and second largest container port. Generating some $10.5 billion in economic activity and handling more than $60 billion of freight each year, these gateways are essential to both the NSW and national economies.

The precinct also plays a key role in connecting regions to the north, south and west of Sydney.

Over the next 20 years, container freight, air travel and general traffic in and around the precinct is expected to grow significantly, putting more pressure on already congested roads and other infrastructure.

To address the challenges ahead and lay the foundations for sustainable economic growth, Infrastructure NSW was asked by the NSW Government to develop an Infrastructure Strategy Statement for the precinct.

The aim of the strategy is to enable the NSW Government to evaluate the most effective options and prioritise infrastructure investments. The strategy will look at:

  • Improving public transport
  • Alleviating congestion on the road network through demand management
  • Investing in addressing key traffic bottlenecks
  • Improving the reliability and efficiency of rail freight.

Infrastructure NSW delivered the strategy to the NSW Government in January 2012.
