nsw budget 2020 travel time to the new sydney airport could be slashed

More than $9 billion will be spent on the rail link which connects the city to the new Western Sydney Airport, slashing commuter time for travellers.

Over the next four years new funds worth $9.2 billion will be allocated towards the rail link to the airport.

The government hopes this will create up to 14,000 jobs during construction which will boost Western Sydney’s economy with the project described as the “transport spine” for the city’s west.

“Our growing Metro network will reach Western Sydney Airport in time for reopening in 2026,” NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said.

This is the only new major infrastructure spend revealed in the state’s 2020-21 budget which was handed down on Tuesday.

The total infrastructure pipeline for the next four years is worth $107.1 billion which the government believes will inject 145,000 jobs into the economy.

“The scale of our infrastructure pipeline is unprecedented, supporting tens of thousands of jobs each year,” Mr Perrottet said.
