Transport and planning
Western Sydney Airport will be well connected to Sydney's road and rail networks from its opening in 2026.
Delivering transport links for a 21st-century airport
Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport will connect the airport with rail in time for its opening. A key commitment of the Western Sydney City Deal, the Australian Government and NSW Government are partnering to jointly fund and deliver rail to the airport.
The Australian Government has announced it will contribute up to $5.25 billion to this city shaping project, inclusive of business case planning and the Elizabeth Drive Overpass, an essential piece of road infrastructure to enable metro rail access to the airport site.
The airport is also supported by the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan, which outlines major road infrastructure projects to keep traffic moving in Sydney's west.
