Learn more about WestConnex with new videos in eight languages
6 Nov 2015
The NSW Government has continued its commitment to reach out to the diverse communities along the project corridor, publishing new videos in community languages.
WestConnex is the largest transport and urban renewal project in Australia and is part of an integrated transport solution to help keep Sydney moving.
Four new videos have been produced for the WestConnex website showcasing the travel time improvements the project will deliver across Sydney. The videos are available in eight languages - Arabic, Hindi, Greek, Korean, Mandarin, Cantonese, Italian, and Vietnamese.
A project spokesperson said WestConnex was committed to reaching out to all members of the community and making information accessible.
“WestConnex is the largest urban road project in Australia and will help transform the way we travel around Sydney,” the spokesperson said.
“It will not only support travel time savings and reduce congestion, but also deliver $20 billion in economic benefits and create more than 10,000 jobs.”
“The new videos show the impacts to traffic on local roads if WestConnex is not built. WestConnex will futureproof Sydney for the expected population increase of 1.6 million over the coming decades.
“WestConnex will also take thousands of trucks and cars off local roads every day and return local streets to local communities.”
“By delivering two-thirds of WestConnex in tunnel we are reducing the impact of surface roads,” the spokesperson said.
Travel time savings when WestConnex is completed include:
• 23 minutes off an average journey between Burwood and Sydney Airport
• 30 minutes off a trip between Liverpool and South Sydney
• 40 minutes off a trip between Port Botany and Silverwater
• 40 minutes off a trip between Parramatta and Sydney Airport
