It will deliver major new toll-free connections from the Sydney motorway network to the International and Domestic terminals and towards the M5, Eastern Distributor and Port Botany. Currently at the delivery readiness phase, SGW will connect the WestConnex Motorway at St Peters Interchange to Sydney Airport and make freight trips to Port Botany easier, safer and faster. Importantly, it will also return local streets to the Mascot community by providing a new route for around 10,000 trucks a day reducing travel times and congestion.
