NorthConnex will deliver significant benefits to local communities by easing congestion on Pennant Hills Road, putting more than 5,000 trucks a day underground and returning local streets to local communities. It will also boost the state and national economies by providing more reliable journeys and shorter travel times for the movement of freight. When completed, NorthConnex would enable travel from Newcastle (M1) to Melbourne without a single set of traffic lights.
The crane constructed by Eilbeck for the Trelawney site has been optimised for the 57m deep shaft lifting operations with separate settings for 100t (2.5 m/min) and 40t lifts (17 m/min) and man-riding capability. Main purpose of the crane will be to lower heavy machinery into the shaft for the next 5 years of NorthConnex project works.
During tunnel operation, the emergency ventilation and fire safety systems include two tunnel support facilities located at Wilson Road, Pennant Hills, and Trelawney Street, Thornleigh. The Trelawney Street tunnel support facility would serve the northern portion of the tunnel. The facility would include an emergency smoke extraction, air intake system and a substation. The site would also serve as temporary construction site and compound.
Site establishment started in August 2015 and will continue throughout April 2016. This work includes:
