Uncomplicating one of the world’s most complex road projects
The Rozelle Interchange and Western Harbour Tunnel Enabling Works (RIWHT) is a road project which research indicates is of a technical complexity never previously replicated anywhere in the world.
The program is the final and most complex stage of the $16.8 billion WestConnex Project.
RIWHT will provide a new underground motorway interchange to City West Link and underground bypass of Victoria Road between Iron Cove Bridge and Anzac Bridge with links to the future Western Harbour Tunnel. On completion, the new below-ground interchange at Rozelle will also provide active transport links, motorway operational facilities, and ten hectares of new public open space located at the site of the disused Rozelle Rail Yard.
