Why do we need Beaches Link?

As Sydney’s population grows, our economy and jobs will also grow, as will the number of trips made in and around Sydney every day.

Congestion costs our economy around $6.1 billion a year.

By 2030, this cost is expected to hit $12.6 billion a year. Motorway connections, as part of an integrated transport network, provide critical support to a growing economy in a global city like Sydney.

Beaches Link is a key initiative for Sydney’s integrated transport network. It will relieve congestion, improve access by public transport to jobs and services and increase the efficiency of the freight network.

The project has been identified as an infrastructure priority by both the NSW and Australian Commonwealth Governments.

It supports the NSW Government’s strategic objectives for Greater Sydney and delivers on recommendations made by Infrastructure Australia.
