The NSW and Federal Governments, Transurban and the M7 Westlink Shareholders (the Project Sponsors) are planning to build, operate and maintain a tolled motorway linking the M1 Pacific Motorway at Wahroonga to the Hills M2 Motorway at West Pennant Hills – called NorthConnex.

HunterNet, Central Coast Manufacturing Connect and Engineers Australia Central Coast Group are pleased to be able to host Robert Ioffrida and Travis Butler from Lend Lease who will give a presentation on the project covering what is NorthConnex and who is delivering it and will provide some insight into the projects design features and timings.

The proposed nine kilometre tunnel motorway includes interchanges to the north and south to accommodate connections at either end of the project. When complete, it will link Sydney's north to the Orbital network and form part of the National Highway route.

Importantly for the Hunter and Central Coast it provides an important infrastructure for freight traffic and the wider connectivity within NSW to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow along Pennant Hills Road.

This presentation will highlight the opportunities for local organisations to understand what opportunities exist to be a supplier or collaborate with others to be a supplier, to this project.

The $3 billion project, consisting of a construction budget of $2.65 billion in addition to land and project delivery costs, will be funded through toll charges with a contribution from the NSW and Federal Governments of up to $405 million each.
