- Airport to accommodate up to 10M passengers per annum
- Architect: Woods Bagot, Engineering: Arup, Aviation consultants: Airbiz
- Scheduled to open late 2026
The Western Sydney Airport is gradually taking shape as more announcements have been made.
In March, the city accompanying the airport was officially named, Bradfield, following community consultation and a panel decision.
“Bradfield was selected after the community was asked to have a say, with a panel settling on the final decision to honour John Bradfield’s enduring city-shaping impact on Sydney, including his major contribution the Sydney Harbour Bridge. “

In recent days, following a competitive procurement process, the contract to take the initial concepts through to a final design and to construct the terminal has been awarded to Australian-founded company Multiplex.
Expecting to open in late 2026, the airport will also be known as the Nancy-Bird Walton Airport.
Alongside architects Woods Bagot, Arup, and Airbiz, Multiplex “will be engaging local suppliers across a range of trades, and working closely with them to
minimise risk and ensure the highest level of safety on-site,”.
The design has also been praised for its green credentials.
“A climate responsive façade with ample shading and high-performance glass will ensure less energy is needed to keep the terminal at a comfortable temperature all year round,”.
