Submission for: Western Harbour Tunnel & Warringah Freeway Upgrade


City of Sydney

SYDNEY, New South Wales


The City of Sydney has been a long-time critic of WestConnex. This is primarily because this costly motorway project will fail in its primary objective of easing congestion. Urban motorways do not solve congestion; they induce demand for motor vehicle trips and any additional capacity created is quickly filled. This phenomenon applies equally to the Western Harbour Tunnel and Warringah Freeway Project, a component of the WestConnex expansion.
