Together with Treasurer Joe Hockey, Premier Mike Baird, NSW Minister for Roads Duncan Gay, and my Federal Parliamentary Colleague David Coleman, this morning I announced two major milestones for Stage 2 of the WestConnex M5.
The call for expressions of interest to design and construct the stage, and the start of geotechnical investigations to support the tender process were announced as drilling began at the site. It was great to be at the Geotech site in Beverly Hills within my electorate of Barton to keep up-to-date with this major infrastructural progress in our region. Stage 2 of the WestConnex will provide links to the Sydney Airport and Mascot and Alexandria industrial zones, reducing congestion and improving travel time reliability.
The Abbott Coalition Government is getting on with the job of building the roads of the 21st century and I am proud that the WestConnex will deliver so much in the way of efficiency for the residents of Barton.
