About the project
The NSW Government is addressing congestion, improving safety and providing more choice for how you move around all of Sydney.
The M12 Motorway would provide connections between Western Sydney International Airport and the surrounding Aerotropolis to other employment areas and population centres via the Sydney motorway network. It would provide high-speed motorway-standard access from the M7 Motorway and the Northern Road and reduce traffic on Elizabeth Drive and at key intersections.
Transport for NSW is seeking approval to construct and operate the M12 Motorway which would run between the M7 Motorway at Cecil Hills and the Northern Road at Luddenham and would be opened to traffic prior to opening of the Western Sydney International Airport.
EIS Submissions Report
Following the display of the M12’s EIS, Transport for NSW has released an EIS Submissions Report summarising the feedback received and how this has been considered.
An Amendment Report has also been prepared to describe and assess changes to the project since exhibition of the EIS. The report is available on the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s website.
Proposal to widen the M7 Motorway
A Concessionaire of the M7 Motorway recently put an unsolicited proposal to the NSW Government to deliver the M7/ M12 interchange as part of a program to widen the M7 Motorway. The NSW Government is considering this proposal and how it might re-shape how the M12 Motorway is delivered.
The priority to create a connection between the M7 Motorway and the Western Sydney International Airport before it opens in 2026, remains. However, it may mean other sections of the M12 Motorway could be delivered in stages.
