Project details


Council has funded a study to identify streets which may experience increased traffic from WestConnex. The study is part of Council's ongoing effort to protect residents from the impacts of the project. Find out more about what Council is doing on WestConnex

About the study

The study determined the potential changes to traffic on local streets by considering the following scenarios:

  • Without WestConnex - the likely traffic on the current road network in 2021;
  • Opening of Stage 1 (M4 East) and Stage 2 (New M5) of WestConnex - the likely traffic impacts on local streets in 2021; and
  • If Stage 3 (M4-M5 Link) is built - the expected traffic impact in 2031.

See maps of the streets that have been identified for potential traffic increases in: Leichhardt/ Annandale; Haberfield; and St Peters.

Council is inviting the community to comment on what they think the impacts of WestConnex will be to the streets identified in the study. You can provide feedback by adding a marker in the highlighted areas on these maps:
