NEW SYDNEY SPEEDWAY APPROVED
Speedway fans have received some great news recently with final planning approval received for the new Sydney International Speedway. This means that full construction began on January 4 as planned, with the venue set to open at the start of the 2021/22 season.
Key benefits of the project were identified as: -
• The creation of a Motorplex for the NSW motorsport racing community
• A new world class speedway to cater for local, regional, national, and international racing events to grow speedway racing in NSW
• Allowing for speedway racing to relocate before removal of the current speedway facility at Clyde is resumed for Sydney Metro West construction (if approved)
• Supporting the operation of existing commercial facilities within the Western Sydney Parklands Precinct 5: Eastern Creek Motor Sports. The last new two speedway builds in the Southern Hemisphere took 5 and 6 years respectively to get through the planning process, so for Sydney Metro to achieve this in 12 months is a fantastic achievement.
