Design for the Western Harbour Tunnels east of Victoria Road to Birchgrove oval are still being finalised and will be released shortly. This will include essential supporting tunnels such as ventilation, substation, maintenance and temporary access caverns. Some ventilation tunnels will connect into the former Rozelle Rail Yard site and travel under Quirk and Hornsey streets and Lilyfield Road. We’ll reach out to directly impacted residents directly once design is finalised which is expected in the coming months.
Property condition survey
Tunnelling is a safe construction technique that is often used and it is unlikely that it will cause damage to your property.
Effected properties between Emily Street to Victoria Road will be offered a second pre-construction condition survey from the Rozelle Interchange Team. All properties within a zone on the surface equal to 50 metres from the outer edge of the underground tunnels will be offered a property condition survey both before and after construction.
