Docs reveal another WestConnex blowout

August 10, 2017

Sydney's WestConnex road project could blow out by up to $1 billion, leaked documents suggest.

Leaked NSW government documents suggest the cost of a major WestConnex extension could blow out by as much as $1 billion.

The documents, from April, list the estimated total cost of the "WestConnex Sydney Gateway" as being between $1 billion and $1.8 billion, despite an initial estimate of just $800 million.

The government argues the Sydney Gateway is not part of the WestConnex project - the cost of which has already blown out by up to $6.8 billion - despite information of the extension featuring prominently on the WestConnex website.
