Over the next five years, projects will
include transformative road works at the T1
and T2/T3 terminal precincts, a new ground
transport interchange and multimodal
storage and car park facility, and a hotel
at T2/T3 to service passenger demand for
accommodation near the airport.
Sydney Airport Chief Executive Officer
Kerrie Mather says that with more than
150,000 visitors travelling to and from the
airport every day, including more than 28,000
airport workers, the key priority is to improve
the passenger and airport user experience.
‘We’ve listened to our passengers and
are working to make it easier to travel
to the airport, whether by car or public
transport,’ Ms Mather says. ‘With 74 million
passengers per year forecast by 2033, we’re
building the road and public transport
capacity now to support continued tourism
and travel growth.’
Construction work on the first of Sydney
Airport’s ground transport solutions initiatives
began in July with the start of improvements to
the road network in the T1 terminal precinct.
The first stage of the T1 project, targeted for
completion by the end of 2014, includes
construction of a new centre road and a
dedicated, more efficient public pick-up area.
When complete, these changes will
result in greatly improved traffic flow in and
The new one-way road system for the
T2/T3 precinct, expected to be completed
by 2017, will increase the capacity of major
intersections and reduce traffic congestion.
The new ground transport interchange
at T2/T3 will include a bus/coach station to
encourage greater use of public transport.
