Provision of Whole of Life (WoL) advice during procurement, design and construction of the Western Harbour Tunnel
The Western Harbour Tunnel is a major transport infrastructure project that will make it easier, faster and safer to get around Sydney. By creating a western bypass of the Sydney CBD, the Western Harbour Tunnel will take pressure off the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Harbour Tunnel, Anzac Bridge and Western Distributor corridors to improve transport capacity in and around Sydney Harbour.
The Western Harbour Tunnel is a new motorway connection under Sydney Harbour linking WestConnex and City West Link at Rozelle to the Warringah Freeway near North Sydney. As part of the broader the Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link Program, the Western Harbour Tunnel is designed to ease congestion throughout Greater Sydney, improving journey times for public transport, freight and motorists.
The Key features of the Western Harbour Tunnel include:
The project is being procured and delivered by Transport for NSW. An industry update was released in December 2020. The industry update provided further information on several key areas, notably:
TfNSW has commenced a process of seeking tenders from shortlisted organisations for the Development Partner contract.
TfNSW has now commenced a process inviting suitably experienced and qualified organisations to pre-register their interest to participate in the procurement process for the delivery of the Western Harbour Tunnel project.
The M12 Motorway will be a new dual-carriageway motorway, providing direct access to the Western Sydney International Airport at Badgerys Creek and connecting to Sydney’s existing motorway network.
The M12 is currently at detailed design stage and its design (subject to further environmental assessment and approval) reflects the feedback received from the community during the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in 2019 and the Amendment Report in 2020.
Pending final planning approvals in mid-2021, early work is expected to start in late 2021, and major work is expected to start in 2022, with its completion due prior to the Western Sydney International Airport opening in 2026.
The M12 is part of the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan (WSIP) road investment program and is jointly funded by the Australian Government and the NSW Government.
Please watch this short video which has been prepared to provide you with a summary of the ROI and information about industry involvement.
