The NSW government has approved a new industrial precinct, one of 12 planned for the Western Sydney Aerotropolis.
The Mamre Road Precinct land release was for 850 hectares of industrial land, 50 hectares of open space, and 70 hectares of conservation land. The first industrial estates would have occupants from mid-next year, according to the release on Thursday.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the $2.6 billion precinct would enable investment in logistics, advanced manufacturing, circular economy and other enterprises. The construction phase would require 5,200 new jobs.
Western Sydney minister Stuart Ayres said, “We already have interested businesses from the transport and logistics, pharmaceutical and data storage industries ready to move into the precinct and capitalise on its future connections to local, regional and overseas markets.”
