The Pacific Motorway upgrade between Mudgeeraba and Varsity Lakes is a step closer with construction on an early works package starting this week.

As we plan Western Sydney Airport, due to open in 2026, there is much we can learn from Dallas Fort Worth Airport in Texas.

Tunnelling on the New M4 has reached a major milestone with the first underground breakthrough achieved
this morning between two tunnelling sites at Concord.

The Turnbull Government is demanding urgent answers from vehicle manufacturers about their program to recall vehicles which include potentially faulty Takata airbags, following the recent tragic death of a motorist in Sydney, alleged by NSW police to be a Takata airbag deploying incorrectly.

The tragic recent death of a motorist at Cabramatta in Sydney is a powerful reminder to Australians to check whether they own a vehicle equipped with potentially faulty Takata airbags.

I express my sympathy and condolences to the man’s friends and family following this sad loss.

Building and maintaining Australia’s infrastructure is a responsibility shared between all three levels of government and the private sector.

One important role for the commonwealth is working with state and territory governments to co-fund significant infrastructure projects.

More than 500 representatives from a range of industries gathered in Penrith to learn more about opportunities to tender for design and construction work on the Western Sydney Airport.

Media Release: Oaklands Crossing on Track

Adelaide’s crucial Oaklands Crossing project will proceed following agreement between the Commonwealth and South Australian governments along with the local council.


Before we talk about this important step in the construction of vital infrastructure in Western Sydney, I want to say some more about the events in London, the implications for security in Australia and the circumstances of Australians affected.

The attack in London reminds us yet again, that we face a determined enemy in Islamist terrorism. It is a global threat. We fight it the Middle East in the field, in Syria and Iraq. And we fight it at home in Sydney and Melbourne, around the nation and around the world.

We’ve seen these terrorist attacks in one city after another in very recent weeks - in London, in Manchester, in Kabul, in Jakarta and Baghdad.

Representatives from industry and all three levels of government today convened for the forum on Maximising Western Sydney Airport Tourism Opportunity.

Chaired by Dr Andy Marks, Assistant Vice-Chancellor, Western Sydney University, the forum included speeches from Commonwealth Ministers Fletcher & Taylor as well as NSW Minister for Western Sydney, the Hon Stuart Ayres MP, tourism operators and representatives from Austrade.
