Final stage of $16.8B Westconnex now open

The Rozelle Interchange, the last stage of the $16.8 billion WestConnex project, is now open to the public.

The Rozelle Interchange will link the M4 to the Anzac Bridge and the M8 to the City West Link and Victoria Road. The Rozelle Interchange also includes a toll-free bypass of Victoria Road, known as the Iron Cove Link and links to the future Western Harbour Tunnel.

The interchange will provide faster access to the CBD and the inner-west for millions of people from west and south-west Sydney, as well as those heading out of the city to the west and south-west.

Works on the Rozelle Interchange included 24.2 kilometres of tunnel excavation and included Installation of 185+ shotcrete and 100+ rockbolt courses and the use of more than 190 tonnes of recycled glass sand, since construction started back in 2015.

Federal Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Minister Catherine King said the project would help to increase the ease and efficiency of travel throughout the region.

“The opening of the Rozelle Interchange is fantastic for the residents of Sydney, who will enjoy faster access to the CBD, and reduced traffic around notorious bottlenecks,” King said.

“Infrastructure such as this is vital for our cities, improving access for residents right across the city and cutting down on time spent waiting in traffic.”

The Rozelle Interchange and Iron Cove Link have been constructed by John Holland and CPB Contractors Joint Venture, with the delivery managed by Transport for NSW.

The Rozelle Interchange is part of the $16.8 billion WestConnex Project which was jointly funded, with $1.5 billion from the Australian Government, and a $2 billion concessional loan, and with NSW Government contributing $1.8 billion.
