M1 Pacific Motorway bridge opens

A new bridge to carry southbound motorists on the M1 above the future NorthConnex tunnel portals has opened to traffic. 

Federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure Paul Fletcher said the opening of this bridge is the result of more than two years of planning and marks another major milestone for the $3 billion NorthConnex project.

“When complete, NorthConnex will take around 5,000 trucks off Pennant Hills Road every day and return Pennant Hills Road to local traffic, while motorists using the tunnel will save up to 15 minutes travel time by bypassing up to 21 traffic lights along Pennant Hills Road,” Mr Fletcher said.

New South Wales Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said motorists approaching the M1 Pennant Hills Road intersection would now be directed onto a new 400-metre lane.
