We fully recognise the importance of Sydney Park and the investments that the City of Sydney Council and others have made in recent years.
A strip of land owned by Roads and Maritime Services adjacent to Sydney Park is being used to widen Euston Road as part of local road upgrades. This is not part of Sydney Park.
As outlined in the City of Sydney’s own management plan for Sydney Park, this land is dedicated road space and has been subject to a long-standing road widening reservation.
A small boundary strip, adjacent to the road reserve, is also required for the local road widening, however this is more than offset by the additional 8.5 hectares of open green space being created at St Peters Interchange.
Two hectares of this open green space will be directly connected to Sydney Park via a land bridge over Campbell Road.
For surface road sections of the motorway, including the widened M4, the speed limit will generally be 90km/h. In tunnels, the speed limit will be 80km/h, the same as for other tunnels in Sydney. A small section connecting to Sydney Airport may have a lower speed limit.
WestConnex has a distance-based tolling system, like the existing M7 Motorway. Motorists pay only for the sections of the motorway they use and a maximum cap applies.
Tolls will be introduced as each section of WestConnex opens to traffic. The new M4 opened to traffic in July 2017, and distance-based tolls commenced in August 2017.
Distance based tolling will begin on the M5 East and the New M5 when the New M5 opens to traffic in early 2020.
Cars will pay one third of the heavy truck toll, reflecting the greater wear and tear trucks have on the motorway (an approach that is consistent with other Sydney motorways).
For the current toll estimates, see WestConnex tolls.
