Access to and from the airport
Access to and from the airport

Master Plan 2039 and Airport Environment Strategy contain a ground transport strategy and a specific ground transport plan for the period 2019-2024. The five-year plan shows how Sydney Airport will maximise the efficient movement of people and freight to, from and within the airport precincts.

Managing ground access in and around Sydney Airport is important for our customers and our local communities. Development and urbanisation in areas around the airport, together with air passenger growth, has increased demand on ground transport infrastructure in the past five years.

The plan and strategy contained in the Master Plan are designed to improve road network performance in and around Sydney Airport to 2024 and beyond and accommodate forecasted increases in ground transport demand over the planning period. Further detail can be found in the Ground Transport Development Plan in the current Master Plan, which is available to download from the website.

The plan includes additional measures to improve access to, and connectivity of, the active transport network. Active transport infrastructure supports reductions in connection in and around the airport. Footbridge and cycleway connections are in place at T1, as are facilities for bike storage and change rooms.

Sydney Gateway is a NSW Government road project to connect the city’s motorway network to the airport. With approximately 70 per cent of the project’s construction taking place on Sydney Airport land, we work closely with Transport for NSW to facilitate the development of the project which is expected to start in 2021. See the Ground transport section for more information.

Sydney Airport operates an airport transfer bus service between the T1 and T2/T3 precincts and a bus transfer services between the Blu Emu Car Park in the South East Sector of the airport and the T2/T3 precinct.
