Federal MP, John Alexander, has welcomed the announcement of the construction of the NorthConnex as “a coup for Bennelong”.
The federal and state governments recently announced that work on the nine kilometre NorthConnex tunnel, linking the M1 and M2 Motorways, will begin next year and is expected to open in 2019.
“The electorate of Bennelong is home to several of Sydney’s most congested roads. The NorthConnex tunnel will take an enormous amount of pressure off Pennant Hills Road, in turn relieving congestion on Beecroft Road, Epping Road, Lane Cove Road and many other adjoining roads and rat-runs in the area.
