Sydney’s Northern Road Network To Be Transformed


Release Date: 15/01/2015
The Sydney Business Chamber said the February start for the first stage of the NorthConnex motorway will be welcome news for business that cops the cost of traffic congestion on Sydney roads.
 
Executive Director of the Sydney Business Chamber Patricia Forsythe said, "The construction of twin nine-kilometre tunnels under Pennant Hills Road will see 5000 fewer heavy vehicles on Pennant Hills Road each day, creating a more efficient road network and making it more conducive to do business in Sydney.
 
“A motorway-grade road link between the M1 Pacific Motorway and the M2 Motorway will create an uninterrupted road link between Sydney and the Central Coast and Newcastle and will be of major benefit to commuters and business.
 
“Road congestion costs the Sydney economy over $1billion annually and resolving the key bottlenecks and pinch-points must remain a high priority until all the missing links on the Sydney road network are completed.
 
“This is a positive outcome for Sydney where stop/start driving due to congested roads and traffic lights impacts the broader environment, as well as the impact it has for daily road users.
 
“Finishing Sydney's road network will be a boon to business and a driver of efficiency for the city by reducing travel times and providing new opportunities for urban renewal."
 
"When completed, it will for the first time be possible travel from the Hunter to Canberra and Melbourne without encountering a single set of traffic lights, said Mrs Forsythe.
 
“The project will be a big step in creating a road network for Sydney that supports its global city status.
