Beverly Hills North Public School tree planting day

19 Dec 2016

Last week students from Beverly Hills North Public School joined the project team for the King Georges Road Interchange Upgrade to help apply the finishing touches to the project.

With work on the project nearing completion, around 20 students from grade 6 and 7 took part in a tree planting day with the help of members from Fulton Hogan’s Environment, Landscaping and Community teams at Elouera Street South. This is part of the landscaping work for the upgrade.

The $130 million King Georges Road Interchange Upgrade will connect to the existing M5 East and the New M5 twin underground tunnels, which will run for nine kilometres, between Kingsgrove to St Peters.

This vital enabling project for WestConnex, which has helped to create 900 jobs during construction includes widening and extending the on and off ramps to the M5 East by 180 metres, doubling capacity on the ramps and easing congestion along King Georges Road.
