Uncertainty Surrounds Timeline of Beaches Link Tunnel Project

April 20, 2022

There has been recent media speculation surrounding the delay and potential cancellation of the controversial 7.5-kilometre twin tunnel project.

Citing spiraling costs of public infrastructure and a shortage of workers, NSW Infrastructure Minister Rob Stokes reportedly indicated that the Beaches Link tunnel project first set forth in 2017, could be put on the backburner.

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has caused a large budget deficit on the Australian government and has created concerns about tremendous budget blowouts for other major transport projects like the City and Southwest Metro rail line and the first stage of the M6 motorway in Sydney's south.

In a recent article written by Jim O’Rourke in the Daily Telegraph, Balgowlah Resident Group spokeswoman Nerissa Levy said “…they see clearly through the planning process and the impact of Covid-19, that more has been learned about the project and its engineering difficulties and potential cost blowout”.
