    Sydney Airport stated (15-May-2017) its five year ground access improvement programme is due to complete one year ahead of schedule in late 2017.

Remaining projects due for completion by the end of 2017 include:

    • Elevated shared cycle/pedestrian path from the Alexandra Canal cycleway to provide access over roads and car parks into P7 at T1;
    • New dedicated exit road for Departures Road/Arrivals Court to Airport Drive at T1 to streamline traffic movement;
    • New flyover from Airport Drive into the T1 precinct to eliminate traffic weaving;
    • Additional lane on Qantas Drive at T2/T3 to provide more capacity for traffic exiting the precinct.
