The federal and New South Wales governments will spend an extra $3.5billion to start building the Western Sydney Airport train line this year, creating 14,000 jobs. 

Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Monday said the $11billion metro line would be complete and operational when the airport is opened in 2026.

The area around the airport is also being built up into a thriving urban region known as the aerotropolis. 

Initial construction on the rail line begins this year and the major works will start in 2021.

The metro line will run from St Marys train station to the airport's north, via Luddenham and Orchard Hills.

Around the airport will be a metropolitan subregion known as the aerotropolis.
