    We’ve reached an exciting milestone in Australia’s largest road infrastructure project – WestConnex – with the opening of the new M4 tunnels. This $3.8 billion investment will allow motorists in Western Sydney to travel on the M4 from Penrith to the Inner West of Sydney without a single traffic light. It will also take thousands of trucks off local roads – a massive win for local communities!

    Unprecedented downpours, flash flooding and strong winds made Wednesday’s weather some of the wildest we’ve seen in a long time. It was great to see everyone playing their part in keeping Sydney moving.

    Check out some of the photos from across our roads and public transport network.
