Bicycle NSW has worked closely with Bicycle User Groups (BUGs) and Councils over many years to ensure that the huge Sydney Gateway Project, which creates a new motorway connecting Westconnex at St Peters Interchange with the two terminals at Sydney Airport, delivers really positive outcomes for active transport.

The advocacy efforts of the cycling community helped ensure that a high-quality Active Transport Link (ATL) is being provided.  The ATL includes the recently-opened shared user path along the north side of the Alexandra Canal, an elegant new bridge over the canal and a connection to the Domestic Terminal.

Although we are delighted by the ATL, connections to the wider active transport network have not been resolved.  Construction of the motorway is racing ahead and future links may soon be concreted over – literally!

Bicycle NSW recently wrote an issues paper that asked stakeholders to review the possible options for a cycleway heading north-west to Sydenham and ensure that the high-quality pedestrian routes from Domestic Terminal to Mascot town centre are delivered.

Site visits and discussions with Transport for NSW and the Minister for Active Transport continue.  It is essential not to miss the opportunity to deliver amazing regional cycling routes that allow workers and travellers to reach the airport from every direction!
