Proposed NSW motorway link moves to Stage 3

NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell and Minister for Roads Duncan Gay have announced the proposed motorway linking the F3 with the M2 had progressed to Stage 3 under the NSW Government’s unsolicited proposals assessment process.

The NSW Government received the unsolicited proposal from private motorway operator Transurban and the Westlink M7 shareholders last year, to construct the eight kilometre link along the Pennant Hills Road corridor.

“This is an important missing link in Sydney’s motorway network – it has the potential to cut 15 minutes from travel times in each direction and remove thousands of trucks from Pennant Hills Road,” Premier O’Farrell said.

Minister Gay said the proposed link would be jointly-funded by Transurban and the Westlink M7 shareholders, the NSW Government and Federal Government and include tolls. It’s expected the link would cost up to $2.65 billion.

“The F3-M2 link would provide a continuous motorway between Western and South Western Sydney and the Central Coast and Hunter,” Gay said.

“We have been working closely with the private sector to progress this new motorway project, to reduce congestion on Sydney’s roads and provide better and more efficient movement of freight across the State.”
