澳洲最大的公路建设工程 Westconnex 将提前完工!

预计在下周公布的联邦财政预算案中,艾伯特政府会追加额外的20亿澳元拨款借给新州,加快建设悉尼Westconnex高速公路项目。要知道大笔追加拨款借给基础建设是预算案中前所未有的事情。

 

据Daily Telegraph了解,艾伯特总理已经批准借20亿澳元给新州政府(loan to the NSW Government ),以便新州政府提前建设悉尼Westconnex高速公路项目,预计明年年初就开工。

 

低利率贷款给新州是联盟党政府首创的,以资助基础设施建设。

 

以后新州要用道路开通后的收取的过路费来还给联邦政府。

 

联邦政府将总共资助建设悉尼Westconnex的33公里长的高速公路35亿澳元。

预计此次决定新增加的20亿澳元,将会使得新州政府可以允许同时对M4M5进行改造和延伸,可以将工程提前两年,争取第一期和第二期的工程都在2019年完工。

悉尼Westconnex高速公路原来设定的各期工程和现在加建的详细内容:

 

 

【第一期工程】 M4 (Parramatta – Haberfield)

 

第一期工程将延长M4到第三期工程的机场隧道。也就是将工程从第一期Strathfield(结束的点),延长第3期的隧道直达到机场。

2019年建好后(从现在起5年后)受益居民所处的区域有:

 

Parramatta– Granville (James Ruse Drive) – Auburn – Sydney Olympic Park, Lidcombe –Homebush – Strathfield /Burwood– Five Dock – Haberfield

 

 

工程完工后,从悉尼西区Granville的James Ruse Drive到悉尼机场将从原来的60分钟缩短到20分钟。从James RuseDrive到市中心的时间从50分钟算短到25分钟。

【第二期工程】M5 EAST AIRFPORT LINK 东部机场快线

 

 

第二期工程,也是此次联邦政府给出额外20亿贷款,将加速扩建M5高速公路到双向4线,建设M5东6公里的第二隧道。允许同时和第一期工程同步建设,并提前2019年开通!

M5高速公路东到机场快速线,从南部的Beverly Hills到内西区的St Peters将会在预定2016年年中开工提前到2015年年初,预计到2019年可以和第一期同时完工。

【第三期工程】连接M4到机场快线和M5(M4 SOUTH, 2023年开通)

 

 

为了连接M4和M5两条悉尼大动脉,还将要建设一条M4南高速公路,这是一条8.5公里长的3线双向隧道,从Haberfield地下打横穿过一直到St Peters。

 

这一条隧道将会从2018年年开工到2023年完工。预计M5东第二隧道建成后,每天的车流量将会有10万。

2023年建好后(从现在起9年后)受益居民所处的区域有:

Harberfield, Summer Hill –Leichhardt, Petersham – Camperdown, CBD 市中心–St.Peters

【好处多多】当整个Westconnex项目完工后:

 

1. 从西区Parramatta到机场的行车时间将缩短40分钟。

2. 从内西区乘坐巴士到市中心的时间减半。

3. 预计可以增加1000个工作职位

4. 西区Parramatta到机场可以绕过52个红绿灯

5. 每天减少3000辆大卡车在Parramatta路上行走

6. 对新州产生200亿的经济效益。

 

 

预计联邦政府的这一笔贷款将从明年7月1号开始到2018年12月31号为止。之后新州政府将按照政府的债券利率来还债。

$2 billionin federal funding in next week’s Budget opens up a fast track to the West

 

EXCLUSIVE SIMON BENSON NATIONAL POLITICAL EDITOR

THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

MAY 08, 2014 12:00AM

 

 

AN extra $2 billion in federal funding will be injected intofast-tracking Sydney’s Westconnex motorway project as part of an unprecedented ­infrastructure package in next week’s budget.

 

 

The Daily Telegraph has learnt Prime Minister Tony Abbott has approved a $2 billion loan to the NSW Government to bring forward the motorway’s stage 2 construction start date to as early as the beginning of next year.

 

The low-interest loan, the first of its kind to fund infrastructure, would be leveraged against the tolls charged when the roadopens.

 

 

DEBT TAX LOCKED IN, PAIN TO FOLLOW

 

It will bring total federal funding for the 33km project to$3.5 billion and expedite completion by two years to 2019 by allowing work to begin on the M4 and M5 at the same time.

 

Stage one involves extending the M4 from Strathfield, where it ends now, to a stage 3 tunnel link tothe airport.

 

Stage two, with the funds from the loan, will widen the M5East to two, four-lane expressways between King Georges Rd, Beverly Hills, and Bexley Rd, with a new6km tunnel from St Peters to join the widened M5 East surface and a double, three-lane expressway to St Peters and Sydney Airport.

 

 

FAIR GO FOR THE WEST: BAIRD BACKS OUR ACTION PLAN

 

It will fund duplication of the M5 East twin tunnels used by100,000 motorists a day.

 

When completed, the Westconnex will cut travel times between Parramatta and Sydney Airport by up to 40 minutes.

 

It will also:

 

· Halve bus travel times between the inner westand CBD;

· Generate 10,000 jobs;

· Bypass 52 sets of lights;

· Remove 3000 trucks a day from Parramatta Rd and;

· Deliver more than $20 billion in economicbenefits.

 

Mr Abbott said yesterday: “Everything in this Budget isabout building a stronger economy so there are a whole range of changes.

 

“Infrastructure is what enables us to get to work, to gethome and the more time we spend stuck in traffic jams, the less time we are productively at work or the less time we’re spending with our families.”

 

The loan will begin to be drawn down between July 1 nextyear and December 31, 2018. It will be repaid at a lower interest rate closer to the government bond rate.

 

Christelle Van Schellebeeck, 20, drives to work from Rooty Hill to Haberfield on the M4 and Parramatta Rd.

 

She said she would be happy to see the upgrade fast-tracked.“It would mean less petrol and it would be faster to get to work,” she said.
