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 will have a distance-based tolling system, like 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 new M4 opened to traffic in July 2017, and distance-based tolls commenced in August 2017.
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.
Transferring vehicles from surface roads into free-flowing underground motorway tunnels will improve the air quality along existing surface roads where traffic is reduced.
For example, an independent air quality assessment detailed in the M4 East EIS found air quality will generally improve along the Parramatta Road corridor because of traffic shifting to WestConnex.
Motorists will have a smooth motorway to travel on, rather than being stuck in congested, stop-start traffic with traffic lights, and this will reduce emissions.
Our tunnels are also designed to reduce emissions, as they are generally flatter and less steep at the entries and exits.
