The new M4. Faster. Safer. More reliable.

The new M4 is open. Stretching 7.5km between Parramatta and Homebush and increased from six to eight lanes, there's now an even faster way to bypass 28 sets of traffic lights on Parramatta Road and reduce travel times in the west. The new M4 has also been upgraded to have smoother road surfaces, and for the first time motorists can now access the new M4 heading towards the city from the new Hill Road on-ramp, directly from Sydney Olympic Park.

From 15 August 2017, a distance-based toll will begin for the upgraded section. The M4 west of Parramatta remains free. 

Work to extend the new M4 from Homebush to Haberfield in underground tunnels is well underway, opening in 2019 for faster trips bypassing Parramatta Road. By 2023, the M4 will link to a New M5, creating a western bypass of the city for faster, safer and more reliable trips.

For faster journeys, more lanes and less time on the road, please see the following information about the new M4:

WestConnex M4 tolls

Distance-based tolls will begin on the upgraded section between Parramatta and Homebush on 15 August 2017. The distance-based toll is for the widened M4 Motorway only. There is no toll west of Parramatta, meaning more than 80 per cent of the M4 remains free.

Getting an electronic tag or pass

For faster trips on the new M4 between Parramatta and Homebush, motorists will need a working electronic tag or pass correctly fitted in your vehicle. The new M4 accepts any toll tag products. If your vehicle does not have an electronic tag or pass, you can order an E-Toll tag, or organise an eMU Pass from our preferred tag partner, Roads and Maritime Services.

Safety on the motorway

With the new M4 open to motorists, it's important to be aware of what to do and who to contact in times of an emergency, throughout incidents, or even if you simply have any questions.
