WestConnex will have a distance-based tolling system, similar to the existing M7 Motorway. Motorists will 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 first tolls will start on the M4 in 2017, when the M4 Widening project is opened to traffic.

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 Using WestConnex.

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.

WestConnex projects will open to traffic in stages between 2017 and 2023. See our Interactive map
