In March 2015, the federal government approved Sydney Airport’s Ground Access Solutions and Hotel Major Development Plan (MDP), which includes ground access solutions for the T2/T3 precinct and a new hotel.
The approval of the MDP followed extensive consultation with the community with public feedback incorporated into the plan.

Our priority is to make it easier to travel to, from or past Sydney Airport by car, taxi or public transport. This will benefit airline passengers, airport workers and other airport visitors as well as Sydney motorists and commuters generally.
The construction of a new road will create a better performing one-way road network through the T2/T3 precinct, increase the capacity of major intersections, significantly improve traffic flow and reduce traffic congestion.
Motorists driving to or from the T2/T3 precinct will have more “green light time” at key intersections, making their journey quicker and easier.
The MDP includes:
- Ground transport improvements for the T2/T3 precinct that will streamline traffic flow;
- A purpose-built Ground Transport Interchange to accommodate public buses, coaches and cars;
- Expanded pedestrian and cycle infrastructure to encourage active transport and improve safety; and
- A new 4-5 star hotel with 430 rooms and conference facilities at T2/T3.
