The changes, effective immediately, enable motorists to bypass merging traffic on Departures and Arrivals roads and directly enter the precinct via Centre Road to access the express pick-up zone, the P9 open-air and the P7 multi-storey car parks.
The new entry is designed to smooth traffic flows and ease congestion during peak periods by reducing the volume of traffic merging at the existing Airport Drive/Marsh Street confluence.
The upgrade forms part of Sydney Airport’s five-year ground access improvements program. The joint $500 million investment with the NSW Government will make it easier for motorists, public transport users, cyclists and pedestrians to travel to and from the airport.
New road signage will direct motorists and guide them into the correct lanes for Departures, Arrivals, pick-up zones and car parks.
The opening follows the successful opening of three new lanes for traffic entering the T2/T3 Domestic precinct in December 2016, widening Sir Reginald Ansett Drive from two lanes to five.
Further improvements will be implemented this year, with construction already underway on:
Sydney Airport asks motorists to exercise care when driving into the T1 precinct under the new traffic arrangements, and to observe all signage and speed limits.
