Dialogue and Prime Minister praise Airport milestones

The Dialogue today joined Prime Minister Scott Morrison at the opening of the first public building at the Western Sydney International Airport.

Dialogue Executive Director Adam Leto said the Western Sydney International Experience Centre would provide residents and visitors with a window into the future of the $5.3 billion Nancy Bird-Walton International Airport.

 “This centre is our first glimpse of what our airport will offer - an opportunity to see first-hand the new doorway to one of the nation’s fastest growing regions,” Mr Leto said.

 “It’s also a great way to engage with local communities and not only detail the vision for the site but outline the opportunities it will provide.”

The centre’s education and exhibition space features viewing platforms of the terminal and runway as well as interactive digital displays and is expected to attract thousands of visitors to the airport prior to its opening in 2026.

Upon opening, Western Sydney International is flagged to service 10 million passengers annually via domestic and international flights. Freight flights will also operate.

Earthworks at the site are due to commence in early 2020, with Lend Lease and CPB Contractors securing the contract.
