Key Outcomes

Our Advisors worked with the client team to develop and finalise a procurement strategy, which was ultimately presented to the NSW Premier and Roads Minister.

Each of the recommended procurement strategies were additionally supported by the necessary commentary and risk analysis.

The project will involve the following key elements:twin 4km tunnels linking the New M5 Motorway at Arncliffe to President Avenue at Kogarah

  • the project will provide essential capacity to connect the North Shore and Northern Beaches with the Sydney CBD and beyond
  • Western Harbour Tunnel will connect WestConnex at Rozelle with the Warringah Freeway via a new tunnel beneath Sydney Harbour, and
  • this new cross-harbour bypass of the CBD will take pressure off the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour Tunnel.
