The NSW Government plans to call Sydney’s new hi-tech city at Bringelly Bradfield, in honour of the engineer John Bradfield who helped shape Sydney.

The city centre will be built on the doorstep of the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport. 

It will grow into Sydney’s third city, to take its place alongside Sydney and Parramatta.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said Bradfield will define Australia’s first 22nd Century City, which will be a key driver of economic growth and deliver up to 200,000 jobs across the Western Parkland City.
 
Bradfield was a renowned engineer who designed and oversaw the construction of both the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney’s original railway network.

The area has been referred to as the Aerotropolis Core until now.

The NSW Government has 18 foundation partner commitments, including with Suez, Siemens, Hitachi, Sydney Water and Northrup Grumman, and continues to formalise relationships with a number of other partners, including FedEx, Romar Engineering and Quickstep.
