The $2.6 billion Sydney Gateway Project, which will transform the way motorists travel to and from the Sydney Airport precinct, has hit a major milestone.
Construction on this significant road project is now 50 per cent complete, with work set to begin on the installation of the signature twin archway bridge over the Alexandra Canal in Tempe.
“This is another example of the NSW Government’s commitment to delivering city-shaping projects as part of the $76.7 billion transport infrastructure investment across the state over the next four years,” said Minister for Infrastructure, Cities and Active Transport, Rob Stokes.
“The Sydney Gateway project includes a new three kilometre pedestrian and cycle path along Alexandra Canal, creating a transport link for those who want an alternative way to travel to or from work or home.”
Minister for Metropolitan Roads, Natalie Ward, said the focus over the next few months would be the fabrication of the first of the two arch bridges that will connect St Peters Interchange with the International Terminal.
“Sydney commuters are now another step closer to faster and more reliable trips from St Peters Interchange to Sydney Airport, the M5 and the Eastern Distributor as this transformative project hits the halfway mark,” she said.
“The foundations have been laid, and workers will soon embark on the major engineering feat of putting together the 3,000 tonnes of 100 per cent Australian steel to form these eye-catching bridges.”
The project is on track to open to traffic in late 2024.
