“This crucial upgrade will make the Warringah Freeway more efficient and reliable for the drivers who use it every day and will pave the way for the future Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link,” Mr Constance said.
“More than 15,000 jobs will be created during construction of the entire Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link program, with about 600 direct jobs created for the Warringah Freeway upgrade.”
Early works are already underway with the main work to start early next year. Construction is expected to take approximately five years to complete, subject to the detailed design and construction program.
Member for North Shore Felicity Wilson said: “The Warringah Freeway upgrade is part of the NSW Government’s commitment to reduce traffic on our local roads, and it will help create better connections for our community to the future Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link.”
Member for Manly James Griffin said: “Community feedback has helped shape the Warringah Freeway upgrade, and the community will continue to be updated and involved as the entire Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link program progresses.”
