The New South Wales Government is investigating two new motorways for Sydney.
The Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link (WHTBL) are proposed new motorway links that will improve travel times for public transport, freight and private vehicles on some of Sydney’s most critical transport corridors.
Ramboll is engaged to provide specialist constructability advise and input for the IMT specifications for the two proposed immersed tunnel crossings.
These links are designed to work independently, and together, to improve accessibility and connectivity for the Global Economic Corridor and the Northern Beaches, two areas of critical importance to Sydney’s future as a competitive and liveable global city.
Due to a major interface at the Warringah Freeway, these two projects are being considered as a program of works, referred to as the Western Harbour Tunnel, Warringah Freeway Upgrade (WFU) and Beaches Link.
The Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link is a NSW Government initiative to provide additional road network capacity across Sydney Harbour and to improve connectivity with Sydney’s northern beaches.
The Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link program of works includes: · The Western Harbour Tunnel and Warringah Freeway Upgrade project, comprising a new tolled motorway tunnel connection across Sydney Harbour, and the Warringah Freeway Upgrade to integrate the new motorway infrastructure with the existing road network and to connect to the Beaches Link and Gore Hill Freeway Connection
The Beaches Link and Gore Hill Freeway Connection, including a new tolled motorway tunnel connection from the Warringah Freeway to Balgowlah and Frenchs Forest, and upgrade and integration works to connect to the Gore Hill Freeway.
Ramboll is together with BAMSER the preferred tenderer for the provision of Constructability Advisory Services on the Western Harbour and Beaches Project in Sydney (Australia).
