WestConnex

WestConnex is another component of the NSW Government’s integrated transport plan. The NSW Government advises that WestConnex will:

  • Widen the M4 between Parramatta and Homebush and extend it in underground tunnels between Homebush and Haberfield.
  • Double road capacity along the M5 East corridor with the New M5 underground tunnels running between St Peters and Kingsgrove.

  • Join these underground routes together via the M4–M5 Link tunnel to form a seamless motorway without traffic lights.

  • Provide a western bypass of the Sydney central business district (CBD).

  • Provide connections to the Western Harbour Tunnel and BeachesLink.

  • Provide a connection to Sydney Airport and Port Botany via Sydney Gateway.

In June 2017 the City of Sydney announced its proposed alternate proposal for the NSW Government’s WestConnex toll motorway that offers a direct route from the west and southwest to the airport and Port Botany:
