How big will the Aerotropolis be?
Over the next 20 years, Western Sydney's population is expected to grow by another million, contributing to more than half of Sydney's overall expected population growth.
$20 billion of public funding will be invested to develop the Airport, Aerotropolis and surrounding precinct, indicative of the significance of the Aerotropolis and the joint commitment to build a liveable, sustainable and productive place for residents, workers and businesses alike.
The Aerotropolis will be connected by a new metro rail link to the operational, 24-hour Western Sydney Airport, making it equally attractive to residents and workers.
Connecting jobs, health, education and lifestyle, the 11,200-hectare Western Sydney Aerotropolis will be the City’s fourth metropolitan centre and its newest economic and residential hub, with up to 60,000 new homes.
