The WestConnex has a number of tunnels along its routes to help ease congestion but some people aren’t comfortable driving in tunnels. Here is some advice for driving safely in a tunnel,

  1. When entering turn on your headlights, take off your sunglasses, keep a safe following distance and if possible avoid changing lanes.
  2. Obey the signs including speed limit.
  3. Avoid sudden braking if possible.
  4. Don’t enter the tunnel if you’re running low on fuel or don’t have a spare tyre.
