Be an influencer and futureproof NSWs road network

Fixed term to Nov 2024

The Project

The Warringah Freeway Upgrade (WFU) is the key piece of network integration for the Western Harbour Tunnel project and will streamline operations for Australias busiest road. The upgrade involves 4km of freeway renovation to integrate the new Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link tunnels (WHTBL) with the existing road network.

Upgrade and reconfiguration works will extend from Milsons Point to Naremburn and will include new bridge and road ramp structures, as well as local surface road upgrades and other ancillary works. Public and active transport will also be improved with a free-flowing continuous bus lane and new and upgraded cycleway and pedestrian connections.

These works will optimise traffic flow across the three crossings and reduce traffic weaving, making the Warringah Freeway easier to navigate and safer for commuters. This historic project will change the way people move around Sydney and shape the future of the citys road network.
