The WestConnex motorway is part of the NSW Government’s integrated transport plan and we are delivering this project in partnership with the government.
It is made up of three major projects:
WestConnex is Australia’s largest road infrastructure project and is a critical part of a broader plan to get Sydney, and Australia, moving again. Along with the NSW Government’s record investment in public transport infrastructure, WestConnex is easing congestion, creating tens of thousands of jobs, and connecting communities.
When complete in 2023, WestConnex will provide motorists with a continuous, 33km traffic-light free motorway network, with connections for future projects linking the north shore and northern beaches, Sydney Airport and the southern suburbs.
Mostly underground, WestConnex is freeing up large areas in communities that are being turned into 18ha of parks, playgrounds and recreational facilities. In addition, WestConnex is delivering and planting more than 1 million trees and plants
Once complete, WestConnex will:
- move traffic and heavy vehicles below street level, returning local streets to local communities
- deliver more than 14 kilometres of new and upgraded cycling and walking paths
- reduce travel times between Parramatta and Sydney Airport by 40 minutes
- allow motorists to avoid 52 sets of traffic signals
- create more than 18 hectares of new recreational green space for local communities
- reduce greenhouse gas emissions by over 610,000 tonnes per annum
The project is creating more than 10,000 jobs – directly and indirectly.
Construction on WestConnex started in 2015 and is due for completion in 2023.
Transurban owns 25.5 per cent of this road project.
