WestConnex New M5 Display Centre
TOUR HOST: Clifford Brake, Tolling Manager, Sydney Motorway Corporation
WestConnex is part of an integrated transport plan to keep Sydney moving. The new 33 km motorway will provide vital support for Sydney’s long-term economic and population growth. One stage of WestConnex is the New M5 which will double capacity along the M5 East corridor with twin underground tunnels spanning 9 km between Kingsgrove and St Peters. The new St Peters Interchange is being constructed at the old Alexandria Landfill site and will provide motorists with connections to Alexandria and Mascot. It also includes connections to the proposed Sydney Gateway and M4-M5 Link. The New M5 is expected to open to traffic in 2020 and will create up to 4,400 jobs.
Attendees will be given a tour of the New M5 Display Centre and an update will be provided on the overview of the project, start of tunnelling and its current progress.
M5 South-West Motorway and E-way Tolling
TOUR HOSTS: Rod McFarlane, Operations Manager, M5 Control Centre and Maria Mele, E-way Operations Manager, Interlink Roads
Opened in August 1992, the M5 South-West Motorway is a free flowing transit corridor spanning 22 km of Sydney’s south west from Prestons to Beverly Hills. The motorway was widened in a project that started in June 2012 and finished in December 2014. The project delivered an additional lane in each direction, conversion to fully electronic tolling, a new operational management and control system, and infrastructure including 22 variable message signs and 51 traffic-monitoring CCTV cameras. The operations centre brings together all elements of the business in one location.
You’ll see in action the call centre, image processing and the newest motorway control centre in the Sydney network.
Technical Tours are included as complimentary with registration.
