Sydney Airport is planning to upgrade the road network in the T2/T3 terminal precinct.
To gain approval from the Australian Government for these upgrades, Sydney Airport is exhibiting for public comment an updated preliminary draft Major Development Plan (pdMDP). The pdMDP is on public exhibition until 12 December 2014.

The updates include:
Construction of three additional floors on the existing P3 car park and a bridge to link it to the existing P2 car park. This will provide a net increase of approximately 350 car parking spaces and improve pedestrian/vehicle connectivity;
Construction of a new car parking structure to replace the eastern section of the existing P1 car park. This will provide a net increase of approximately 1,250 car parking spaces. An above ground pedestrian corridor with a bi-directional moving walkway and end-of-trip facilities for cyclists closer to the terminals will also be provided;
Development of a dedicated pedestrian pathway through the existing P2 and P3 car parks to link with the Ground Transport Interchange. This will result in a loss of approximately 100 car parking spaces; and
A reduction of around 1,500 car parking spaces in the proposed Ground Transport Interchange (GTI). End-of-trip facilities will also be provided in the GTI.
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.
A new Ground Transport Interchange will include a bus and coach facility to accommodate single and double-decker public buses. This will support the new and expanded bus routes to Sydney Airport recently announced by the NSW Government.
The proposal includes a conveniently located hotel.
Work is expected to be complete by the end of 2017.
