On 30 June 2020, the NSW Government confirmed the final corridors to support the delivery of the proposed Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport and South West Rail Link Extension projects. A new State Environmental Planning Policy identifies land that is intended to be used in the future as an infrastructure corridor.
The State Environmental Planning Policy (Major Infrastructure Corridors) 2020 identifies the location, and relevant planning controls applying to land identified within the North South Rail Line and South West Rail Link Extension corridors, including land within the Camden LGA.
The North South Rail Line Corridor will support the delivery of both Stage 1 and future stages of Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport and run from St Marys, with a tunnel to Orchard Hills, through to the new Western Sydney Airport, Aerotropolis and Macarthur, with a tunnel from Oran Park.
The South West Rail Link Extension Corridor will run from the Aerotropolis through Kelvin Park and Rossmore to join the suburban rail network at Leppington.

Located 5km North West of Camden LGA is the Western Sydney Airport (Nancy-Bird Walton Airport).
The airport was formally announced by the Federal Government in 2014 and in conjunction with the nearby Bradfield Aerotropolis will provide almost 28,000 jobs by 2031.
The airport is currently under construction with the first flights expected in 2026. For further information please visit the official website.
