M4-M5 Link Rozelle Interchange
The M4-M5 Link is being delivered in two stages:
- M4-M5 Link Tunnels - construction of the mainline tunnels between the New M4 at Haberfield and the New M5 at St Peters and stub tunnels to the Rozelle interchange. This stage is being managed by Sydney Motorway Corporation.
- M4-M5 Link Rozelle Interchange - construction of the Rozelle Interchange and Iron Cove Link. A contractor is expected to be appointed by the end of 2018. This stage is being managed by Roads and Maritime Services.
Stage two, the Rozelle Interchange and Iron Cove Link is the most complex stage of the M4-M5 Link connecting to the surrounding road network and future Western Harbour Tunnel via underground tunnels. It will include an underground tunnel from the Rozelle Interchange to Victoria Road near Iron Cove Bridge, known as the ‘Iron Cove Link’.
The interchange in Rozelle will be mostly underground and located at the site of the old Rozelle Rail Yards. By building the interchange mostly underground, the project will deliver new active transport options in Rozelle and up to 10 hectares of new green space.
