Population in our great city is expected to grow from five million to eight million in the next 40 years.
We also expect to see Sydney’s economic output double by 2031. This includes significant growth in high-skilled jobs in the Global Economic Corridor, which stretches from Macquarie Park and Chatswood to North Sydney, the Sydney CBD and beyond to Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge, Warringah Freeway and Eastern Distributor have been identified as among Australia’s 30 most congested roads.
Improvements to existing transport networks and the creation of new transport connections will be essential for our city to continue to have a competitive economy and meet the growing needs of our communities.
