Construction of the new $2 billion, toll-free M12 Motorway is underway with work commencing on the central and west sections to provide connectivity to the new Western Sydney International Airport.
The central section between Cecil Park and Badgerys Creek is being delivered by Seymour Whyte and the western section to The Northern Road, which includes the airport interchange and Elizabeth Drive flyover, is being delivered by the joint venture of CPB and Georgiou.
To acknowledge the transformation of the Western Parkland City area, the M12 is celebrating local heritage and culture in its design.
The plan focuses on a ‘Connection to Country’ and includes a seed collection program to replant local species. There will also be a sculpture – ‘The Great Emu in the Sky’ – celebrating stories held by the Darug Community.
The project will also replace native trees on a ‘2 to 1’ basis along the motorway.
Major construction on the M12 is scheduled to be completed in 2026, prior to the opening of the new Western Sydney International Airport.
