Sydney western international airport, also known as nancy bird Walton airport, is under construction in badgerys creek, a suburb of Sydney, Australia. Sydney’s new airport will be one of the most important infrastructure development projects in the country.
The construction plan for the airport was finalized by the Australian government in December 2016. The proposed airport will adapt to Sydney’s aviation growth expectations and is expected to double over the next 20 years.
Sydney new airport will be built in phases, and the first phase is scheduled for the mid-2020s. The first phase is expected to accommodate 10 million people per year, while the airport will expand further on demand.
Sydney’s new airport not only operated in a highly competitive market but also created one. When the airport opened in 2026, Sydney would for the first time be a multi-airport city, creating an option for passengers and airlines.
In September 2018 a ground-breaking ceremony was held at the construction site. The construction and operation of the airport will boost the economy of western Sydney by creating jobs and encouraging investment.

80 after the evaluation of the site in the greater Sydney area, Badgerys creek was chosen as the ideal location for the proposed airport.
It covers 1780 hectares, twice the existing Kingsford Smith airport, adjacent to road and rail transport connections. It is also protected by limitations of long-term planning of incompatible urban development.
1.9 million cubic meters of the topsoil will be relocated to establish a flat ground.
