Media Release – M7/M12 interchange critical to Western Sydney jobs and homes

Urban Taskforce CEO, Tom Forrest, today expressed dismay at the decision taken by the Albanese Government to withdraw Commonwealth funding for the M7/M12 interchange – a critical infrastructure connection for the new Western Sydney Airport.

This interchange is critical:

  1. Elizabeth Drive is a two-lane goat track – without the M7/M12 connection, it is impossible for workers and passengers to get from Parramatta, Blacktown or Liverpool to the new airport
  2. There is no aviation fuel pipeline to the airport – so there will be hundreds of truck movements each and every day required just to ensure the planes servicing the new airport have fuel
  3. This decision is a critical blow to investor confidence in Western Sydney – infrastructure underpins employment and the growth of new communities around Western Sydney
