A CSIRO site at the Aerotropolis
CSIRO has entered into discussions with the NSW Government to relocate up to 450 staff -- including CASS staff from the Marsfield site -- to a state-of-the-art facility in the heart of the new Western Sydney Aerotropolis, from 2026. Under the proposed move, a bespoke carbon-neutral CSIRO facility would be built, featuring collaborative workshops and modern, flexible laboratories to support the delivery of cutting-edge science and technology. The CSIRO facility would be central to the Aerotropolis Advanced Manufacturing and Research Precinct, which will bring together research institutes and commercial organisations across advanced manufacturing, quantum technologies, aerospace, defence and agribusiness. The move to Aerotropolis would progress CSIRO’s long-standing plans to consolidate activities and refresh its research facilities, while supporting the agency's growing commitment to Western Sydney. Under the plans, the CSIRO facility would benefit from the $11 billion Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport rail which will service the greater Western Sydney region, and the opening of Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport in 2026. The image above shows an artist's impression of a future CSIRO site at Sydney's Aerotropolis.
