Liverpool mayor welcomes $1billion airport city funding

Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller has welcomed today’s funding commitment by the NSW Government of more than $1 billion to start building the Bradfield City Centre, located near the future Western Sydney International Airport.

“The paddocks at the Bradfield Aerotropolis site will be transformed into a new thriving city filled with opportunities for investment,” Mayor Waller said.

“Bradfield is a city of the future that will support the creation of jobs, some of which will be paired with new education opportunities so locals can study and work in their own backyard.”

She said the city will have a focus on science, technology engineering as well as mathematics.

“This announcement secures the long-term development of the Western Parklands City and underscores Liverpool’s location advantage as the gateway to Western Sydney International Airport and the Bradfield Aerotropolis,” Mayor Waller said.

“There will also be opportunities for education and training with over 7000 micro-credential courses to be run as part of a four pilot under the New Education and Training Model”.

She said it was imperative that connectivity to the airport along with greater access to public transport connections be at the forefront of the development.

“We welcome the new Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport line and we continue to advocate for a choice of public transport options linking the airport including the extension of the Inner West and Leppington Line to the site and for the Fifteenth Avenue Smart Transit (FAST) Corridor,” Mayor Waller said.
