NorthConnex will not only change the communities along Pennant Hills Road by unlocking congestion, we are also leaving behind a lasting legacy for generations to come by promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects in schools and thinking outside the box.
Tiny Tunnellers was a NorthConnex funded program designed to improve the uptake of STEM subjects in schools. It was offered to preschool and primary school children along the NorthConnex tunnel alignment and was designed to provide a foundation for careers including engineering, tunnelling and construction.
Over one million cubic metres of NorthConnex spoil was delivered to lay the foundation for the Hornsby Quarry rejuvenation project. The new Hornsby Quarry will be transformed from an old abandoned quarry into new public parkland for the entire community to enjoy.
