The M5

The M5 South West Motorway is a key part of Sydney’s orbital road network and links central Sydney to the South West, Southern Highlands, Canberra and beyond. The M5 covers 21 km and avoids numerous sets of traffic lights. Since its completion in August 1992, the M5 has saved Sydney motorists countless hours and millions of dollars, reduced air, noise and water pollution and made travelling faster and safer for everyone.

Built on Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) land, the entire motorway (excluding the the Georges River west bridges) is operated and developed by Interlink under a lease that expires in 2023.

Several major roads including, the F5 Freeway, the M5 East Freeway and the Westlink M7, connect to the M5 but are not managed by Interlink. For information on these roads, please click here for the RMS's website.
