NorthConnex will provide twin motorway tunnels around nine kilometres in length with a height clearance of 5.3 m and a speed limit of 80 km/h.

As part of NorthConnex, integration work along the Hills M2 Motorway is under way to allow the safe merge of traffic from the tunnel onto the Hills M2 Motorway via a new westbound lane from Pennant Hills Road to the Windsor Road interchange.

 

  • Twin nine-kilometre motorway tunnels each with a three-lane capacity for future traffic growth
  • A northern interchange at Pennant Hills Road and the M1 Pacific Motorway
  • A northern ventilation outlet and support facilities located within and immediately adjacent to the existing M1 Motorway corridor
  • A southern interchange at Pennant Hills Road and the Hills M2 Motorway
  • A motorway control centre, ventilation outlet and support facilities located near the southern interchange
  • Integration work on the Hills M2 Motorway to provide an extra 3.5 km lane and bridge widening works from Pennant Hills Road to the Windsor Road interchange
  • On and off-ramps linking the tunnel and the existing M1 Pacific Motorway, north of Edgeworth David Avenue
  • A switching station on Coral Tree Drive to power the tunnel and support facilities
  • Two tunnel support facilities to provide air intake systems, emergency smoke extraction outlets and substations.
