WestConnex M8 Community Event

Get ready to jump onto brand new M8 tunnels at the eastbound end of the M5 South-West, and learn about M5 East tolls.

The new twin tunnels run from the end of the M5 Motorway at Kingsgrove to St Peters Interchange, where you’ve got easy access to places like Mascot, Alexandria, Redfern and Randwick.

They’ll save you 30 minutes to the Southern CBD by doubling the capacity and peak hour speeds of the M5 East corridor.

It’s the next piece in the WestConnex puzzle, providing you with quicker, safer and more reliable travel.

Tolling on the M5 East
Tolling has now started on the existing M5 East. If you have a tolling account, you’re already covered.

You can work out the cost of your trips on the M8, M5 East or any toll road in Sydney’s orbital toll road network in advance using this online toll calculator.

The NSW Government M5 South-West Cashback Scheme does not apply to tolls for either the M5 East or WestConnex M8.  

Remember to plan ahead before you travel. For more information visit the WestConnex website.
