NorthConnex is expected to open to traffic in the coming months.
The nine kilometre NorthConnex twin tunnel motorway will directly link the M1 Pacific Motorway at Wahroonga and the Hills M2 Motorway at West Pennant Hills.
The $3 billion project is being delivered by Transurban in partnership with the Australian and NSW Governments.
NorthConnex will deliver faster, safer, more reliable and more efficient journeys for road users. It will also return local roads to local communities, improve air quality along Pennant Hills Road and reduce congestion and noise.
Benefits of NorthConnex:
- Save up to 15 minutes
- Avoid 21 sets of traffic lights on Pennant Hills Road
- Bypass 40 sets of traffic lights on the Pacific Highway to the centre of Sydney
- Improve the efficient movement of state and national freight
- Straighter and flatter route for improved fuel efficiency
- Wider lanes with a breakdown lane to minimise delays from incidents
- Traffic light free Newcastle to Melbourne
Trucks and buses need to plan ahead
Trucks and buses (over 12.5m long or over 2.8m clearance height) travelling between the M1 and M2 must use the NorthConnex tunnel unless they have a genuine pick up or delivery destination only accessible via Pennant Hills Road. Some exemptions apply.
For more information, visit the Pennant Hills Road regulation page.
How much will the tolls be?
NorthConnex tolls will be:
Class A vehicles (vehicles under 12.5m long or 2.8m clearance height): $7.91
Class B vehicles (all other vehicles): $23.73
*Based on 1 July 2020 pricing
How do I pay for my tolls?
The best way to pay your toll is with an electronic tag or pass for use on all of Sydney's motorways.
For a list of electronic tag and pass providers visit the Tags and passes page.
If you don't have an electronic tag or pass, a toll notice will be issued requesting payment of the toll and a fee.
