Milestone Moments: Northconnex tunneling now complete!

Tunnelling of Northconnex, one of Australia’s longest and deepest road tunnels is now complete!

NorthConnex will remove 5,000 trucks a day from Pennant Hills Road, bypass 21 sets of traffic lights and save drivers up to 15 minutes in travel time, resulting in less congestion and faster journeys for our customers.

So far, around 2,550,000 cubic metres of spoil has been excavated across all sites with almost 300,000 cubic metres of shotcrete and concrete being poured.

It is fantastic to see this great project reaching another major milestone with almost eight kilometres of tunnel trenching completed and 13 more kilometres to go. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the NorthConnex project team, it won’t be long until drivers are able to travel between Newcastle and Melbourne without stopping at a single set of traffic lights!
