SNEAK PEEK AT NORTHCONNEX FOR DRIVERS

Drivers can take a trip through the NorthConnex tunnels without leaving their home thanks to never-before-seen driver experience videos.

The innovative videos give drivers a birds-eye view of the congestion-busting benefits of using the NorthConnex tunnels, compared to Pennant Hills Road.

The soon-to-be-finished, $3 billion NorthConnex, will take up to 5,000 trucks off Pennant Hills Road each day, slashing up to 15 minutes off travel time during peak periods.

Drivers will also avoid 40 sets of traffic lights on the Pacific Highway or 21 sets of traffic lights between the M1 and the M2.

Drone and dash cam vision was used in the videos to simulate the journeys drivers can expect when NorthConnex opens.

NorthConnex will connect the M1 in Wahroonga to the Hills M2 via twin nine kilometre tunnels.

Transport for NSW Chief Operations Officer Howard Collins said the new videos help drivers become familiar with NorthConnex before their first journey.

“We want motorists to take note of the new entry and exit points, where they will navigate new movements and how the motorway connects to the broader road network,” Mr Collins said.

“NorthConnex is in the final stages of operational testing and software commissioning and expected to open in the coming weeks.”
