Getting to Liverpool

Sydney's developing transport infrastructure clearly favours Liverpool City above all other cities in Greater Western Sydney.

The City is the only regional centre on the M7, which will significantly reduce travel times to the west and north of Sydney. The M5 links Liverpool City directly to Australia's largest global gateways of Kingsford Smith Airport and the seaports of Port Botany and Port Kembla. The off peak journey to the airport is just 20 minutes and central Sydney is only 25-30 minutes away.

To the south, the Hume Highway links Sydney to Canberra and Melbourne and traffic heading north to central Sydney.  To the north, the Cumberland Highway, which runs to Parramatta and beyond to the Sydney-Newcastle Freeway, also links the City to the M4 and the Great Western Highway, providing a gateway to the Blue Mountains and western NSW.

In addition to major road extensions, Liverpool boasts one of Sydney's first rapid bus transit-way systems. The Liverpool to Parramatta bus transit-way is a dedicated 20km bus priority transport route linking the two major centres via the industrial areas of Wetherill Park and Smithfield.

The state of the art Liverpool railway station is used by an average 22,000 commuters daily, making it one of the busiest on the Sydney railway network. 

Travel time to central Sydney on the East Hills line is an average 30 minutes.  With the construction of the Harris Park to Merrylands railway link, Liverpool passengers also have direct railway access to the Western line and centres such as Parramatta, Penrith and the Blue Mountains and western NSW.
