Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link

Beaches Link is a tunnel which would connect to the Warringah Freeway, cross under Middle Harbour connecting with the Burnt Bridge Creek Deviation at Balgowlah. The Wakehurst Parkway will be upgraded to two lanes each way between Seaforth and Frenchs Forest.

The Western Harbour Tunnel would connect to WestConnex at the Rozelle Interchange, cross underneath Sydney Harbour between the Birchgrove and Waverton areas and connect with the Warringah Freeway at North Sydney.

Key objectives of the Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link project are:

  • Improve Northern Beaches public transport
  • Future-proof Sydney’s transport to meet population and growth challenges
  • ‘Step change’ for public transport for the Northern Beaches and Mosman
  • Deliver a new crossing of Sydney Harbour to make Sydney’s busiest transport corridor shock-proof
  • Cut congestion across northern Sydney and the Sydney CBD
  • Better access to jobs, education and community services for northern Sydney
  • Provide better East-West, North-South connectivity
  • Reduce rat-running on local community roads.
