About the Projects

The Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link program is a major transport infrastructure program that will make it easier, faster and safer to get around Sydney. As Sydney continues to grow, faster and more reliable trips are essential to reducing congestion and providing new levels of access to jobs, recreation, and services such as schools and hospitals.

The Western Harbour Tunnel (WHT) is a major transport infrastructure project that will make it easier, faster and safer to get around Sydney. The project will integrate with public transport, improve travel times and boost reliability for cross harbour trips and the broader network. This new western bypass of the CBD includes over 6.5km of twin tunnels from the Rozelle Interchange, under Sydney Harbour and to the Warringah Freeway. The majority of the project will be deep underground in tunnels, greatly reducing surface impacts to private property, communities and the environment.

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. 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.

These historic projects will change the way people move around Sydney and shape the future of the citys transport network.
