ROADS INVESTMENT KEY TO DEVELOPMENT OF SECOND SYDNEY AIRPORT

gtr-news-roadsinvestment-lgeInvesting in roads and finalising plans to secure employment land around Sydney’s second airport site in the west of the city is key to a New South Wales Government plan to generate employment in the region, according to Planning Minister, Pru Goward.

Ms Goward said up to 8,000 new jobs could be created following an investment of $30 million in new roads.

And – in addition – the government had finalised plans to lock-in land around the site of the airport making way for more than 57,000 jobs over the next 30 years.

Ms Goward said infrastructure remained a critical factor in the take-up of industrial land, with roads paving the way forward to activate employment precincts like the Western Sydney Employment Area.

“This is smart planning as we work to rebuild NSW – locking in employment land and investing in the infrastructure we need to secure jobs in western Sydney now and into the future.

“With about 40 per cent of all jobs in our west located in an industrial precinct, it’s critical we harness the potential of western Sydney as the nation’s third largest economy by investing in infrastructure.”

In total, around 420 hectares of employment land will benefit from recently announced road projects as part of the Australian and NSW Government, jointly funded, $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan.
