First class tickets to airport construction

First class tickets to airport construction

 A visitor centre with views of the construction site will give the community a chance to see Western Sydney Airport take shape from the best seat in the house.

WSA Co has called for registrations of interest to deliver the centre, where the public will be able to learn about the airport and watch the project unfold.

“This project is about more than building an airport, it’s about creating a catalyst for Western Sydney’s growth and we want the community to be involved from the start,” WSA Co Chief Executive Graham Millett said.

“The visitor centre will tell Western Sydney Airport’s story so far, including why it’s needed and the benefits it will bring, particularly in terms of jobs and opportunities for locals.”

Airport construction has been projected to support more than 11,000 direct and indirect jobs, with more than 27,000 when it’s operating. Local employment targets will guarantee many of these jobs for Western Sydney residents.

The visitor centre will be built in an elevated position near one end of the runway, with direct views to where the terminal will be located.

“We’ve chosen the prime position on what is a very large construction site to give visitors the best views possible,” Mr Millett said.

“The visitor centre will be for school and community groups, local residents and anyone interested in feeling like a part of Australia’s most exciting infrastructure project.”

The registration of interest includes finalising the centre’s design, as well as construction, which is due to begin this year. The visitor centre is due to open around mid-2019.

Western Sydney Airport is set to open its boarding gates to airlines and passengers in 2026.
