The Northern Gateway Precinct is to the immediate north of the major entry to the airport itself. The Precinct will provide important links north into the greater Penrith area via the major transport infrastructure of the metro, motorway, freight, main road, strategic bus way and cycleway connections. The precinct will become a hub for manufacturing, warehouse and distribution functions, while the inclusion of a new metro station in the proposed Science Park will offer scope to create a vibrant and well-connected mixed use strategic centre.


The street layout is fully integrated with extensive parklands, as all parks will have defined public frontages. Most streets will have open vistas to parklands and beyond to the broader landscape. The generous street sections will provide ample space for a tree canopy to develop, and for innovative water management. Together the streets and parks will lead the implementation of sustainable green infrastructure, and will provide essential walking and cycling links across the territory.


Over time the Northern Gateway Precinct will develop as a support precinct for the airport, with jobs in warehousing and distribution, and manufacturing. The proposed Science Park, which benefits from the new metro station and the rapid bus network, can provide a higher density centre and specialist employment and mixed use opportunities. Local centres are distributed across the precinct, giving the opportunity for some retail mixed with social uses such as clubs and community buildings.
