The M4 Motorway is a 40 kilometre motorway that extends from Concord in Sydney’s inner west to Lapstone at the foothills of the Blue Mountains.
As part of the WestConnex project, a 7.5 kilometre section of the M4 Motorway has been widened from three to four lanes in each direction between Parramatta and Homebush, as well as new and upgraded on and off ramps.
This section, known as the New M4, provides motorists with faster, safer and more reliable trips, bypassing 28 sets of traffic lights on Parramatta Road and reducing travel times in the west.
Work to extend the M4 underground from Homebush to Haberfield is also underway, opening in 2019 for faster trips bypassing Parramatta Road. By 2023, WestConnex will link the New M4 to a New M5, creating a bypass of the CBD.
The New M4 officially opened on Sunday, 16 July 2017.
The M4 Motorway and tolls
The M4 west of Parramatta remains free and represents more than 80 per cent of the M4 Motorway.
The New M4 will have a distance-based toll between Parramatta and Homebush. From Tuesday, 15 August 2017, tolls will range from $1.77 to $4.56 for cars and motorbikes, or $5.30 to $13.67 for heavy vehicles.
