Sydney Gateway Upgrade Project
Services – Constructability Peer Review

NSW Roads and Maritime Services engaged the CJC Management team of Quoc Phuong (expertise here), Craig Stoddart (expertise here), Jonathan Davies (expertise here) and Colin Calder (expertise here) to undertake a peer review of the delivery program and to review the constructability of the significant bridges structures.

The Project

Sydney Airport and Port Botany are critical international gateways helping to move people and goods around New South Wales. They are set to grow significantly over the next 20 years.

Supporting this growth requires efficient connections to the city and Sydney’s other major centres and freight terminals. Part of the solution is Sydney Gateway.

Sydney Gateway will provide a new alternative route to enhance connections and reduce travel times to Sydney’s ports. It will provide improved access to all airport terminals and cater for increased rail freight, which will help take pressure off local roads.

Sydney Gateway will increase capacity and improve connections to the ports to assist with growth in passenger, freight and commuter movements across the region. It will strengthen Sydney’s position as a global city, expanding and improving the existing road and freight rail networks.

Sydney Gateway includes two key components:

Road: A new alternative route to the domestic and international airport terminals from the Sydney motorway network at St Peters Interchange. Sydney Gateway includes a new dedicated flyover from Qantas Drive to the front door of the domestic airport. This route will bypass all traffic lights along major Sydney motorway networks to the domestic terminals. This project will be delivered by Roads and Maritime Services.

Rail: Duplicate a three-kilometre section of the Port Botany freight rail line to increase capacity and improve service reliability. This project will be delivered by Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC).

Sydney Harbour Bridge Access Lifts
Services – Constructability Advice

Cardno, the lead designer for this project, engaged the CJC Management’s Principal Engineer, Craig Stoddart (expertise here) to provide constructability advice for the Sydney Harbour Bridge Access Lifts project.

The Project

Roads and Maritime was developing a proposal to add a lift on the north and south ends of the eastern walkway of the Sydney Harbour Bridge to allow for access by people with a disability, prams or people who have difficulty climbing stairs.  They worked with industry to carry out extensive work to investigate preferred locations for the lift access, taking into account the heritage value, accessibility standards, visual impacts and integration with the existing structure.

Work to build the new lifts involved:

  • setting up site compounds and installing construction signage
  • removing part of the City of Sydney building at 7 Cumberland Street, The Rocks and landscaping the area
  • removing two trees on Cumberland Street, The Rocks
  • installing one lift on Broughton Street, Kirribilli
  • installing one lift on Cumberland Street, The Rocks
  • building new platforms to connect the lifts to the existing walkway
  • removing and relocating existing utilities
  • removing and replacing 300 metres of asphalt and adjusting the stormwater system at the southern end of the Sydney Harbour Bridge pedestrian walkway

Construction of the new lifts to the Sydney Harbour Bridge pedestrian walkway at Kirribilli and The Rocks was completed between March 2018 and December 2018 and are now open and operational 24 hours a day. As a consequence everybody, including those less mobile, can enjoy the experience of being on one of Australia’s most recognisable landmarks.

The Project

The F6 Extension Stage 1 will deliver the missing link from Sydney’s south to the wider Sydney motorway network making journeys easier, faster and safer. It will remove more than 2,000 trucks a day from surface roads, and help return local streets to local communities.

What is the F6 Extension Stage 1?

The F6 Extension Stage 1 includes:

  • Twin four kilometre tunnels linking the New M5 Motorway at Arncliffe to President Avenue at Kogarah
  • Ramps between the main motorway tunnel and the surface intersection at President Avenue
  • Tunnel stubs for a future connection south to extend the F6 Extension
  • A new intersection at President Avenue including the widening and raising of President Avenue at this location
  • Provision of new shared cycle and pedestrian pathways connecting Bestic Street, Brighton-Le-Sands
  • Motorway support infrastructure including tunnel ventilation systems and the motorway control centre
  • New service utilities including a permanent power supply line
  • Minor adjustments to local roads in the project area.

The project is expected to cost between $2.2 and $2.6 billion, and open to traffic late 2024.

Sydney Harbour Bridge Cycleways
Services – Constructability Assessment

The CJC Management team of Craig Stoddart (expertise here), Florian Wagner (expertise here) and Stephenson Chau (expertise here) have worked closely with NSW Roads and Maritime Services to provide constructability advice for the options selection and concept design phases for both the Northern and Southern Sydney Harbour Bridge Cycleways projects.

The Project

Roads and Maritime Services is working on two proposals to improve accessibility to the Sydney Harbour Bridge cycleways at both the northern and southern ends.

The new cycleway connection would join the southern end of the existing Sydney Harbour Bridge cycleway to create a purpose built connection to the cyclist network on Kent Street. The connection would remove the need for cyclists to share public roads and footpaths between the bridge and Kent Street.

Key features of the proposal include:

  • a dedicated two-way cycleway connection from the Kent Street cycleway to the Sydney Harbour Bridge cycleway
  • removing the existing steep shared-use bridge with a sharp turn over the Cahill Expressway and construction of a new cycle and pedestrian bridge with improved width and sight lines
  • approach ramps to the new cyclist and pedestrian bridge with easier gradients and sight lines.
  • provide a modern, safe design that fits in with the significant heritage values of the area and architectural qualities of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
