WestConnex M4-M5 Link,Community update June - July 2018: "M4-M5 Link work starts this year
The NSW Minister for Planning approved the
M4-M5 Link project in April 2018.
The M4-M5 Link will be built in two stages:
1 Work will start later this year on the M4-M5 Link tunnels connecting the New M4 tunnels in Haberfield with the New M5 tunnels in St Peters. A Motorway Operations Complex at Campbell Road, St Peters will also be constructed.
2 Procurement is underway for the Rozelle Interchange and Iron Cove Link tunnels, which will connect the M4-M5 Link to other sections of the road network. Early work will start later this year, with major work scheduled to start in 2019.
Property owners will be notified if they are within 50 metres of the tunnel alignment and offered a property condition survey before and after construction. This ensures a clear record of property conditions before construction starts. Any damage attributed to the project will be repaired at no cost to the property owner. "...more
Wednesday, 13 June 2018: The NSW Government has today announced the successful tenderer for construction of the mainline tunnel of the M4-M5 Link as the LSB Joint Venture, comprising Lendlease Engineering, Samsung C&T Corporation and Bouygues Construction.
Federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure and Cities Paul Fletcher said today’s announcement is a major milestone for WestConnex. ...more
28 June 2018: "An 'innovative' approach to the delivery of the WestConnex M4-M5 Link tunnels has reduced community impacts and decreased the number of required construction sites.
The seven sites to be used for M4-M5 Link tunnels construction are:
1. Northcote Street, Haberfield (existing New M4 site)
2. Parramatta Road, Haberfield (Muirs)
