WestConnex Motorway Control Centre – A Case Study
We are proud to announce AAF’s recent involvement in the iconic WestConnex Motorway Control Centre. The WestConnex master plan – Australia’s biggest road project to date and the Control Centre is based at St Peters interchange. It will be the heart of the recently opened M8, and in future the M4-M5 link and M6. The new M8 development features twin 9km motorway, from Kingsgrove to St Peters and was opened to traffic in July 2020.

WestConnex M8 provides major travel time savings of up to 30 minutes between Liverpool and Sydney’s southern CBD, while minimising the long-term impact on community and the environment. The project improves access to the Inner West, Central Sydney and to key transport hubs at Sydney Airport and Port Botany.
AAF Evershield® Sovereign Gold featuring Anodised Quality (AQ) Sheet Solution
WestConnex M8 motor control centre is the nerve system for the whole WestConnex operations and acts as the base for maintenance crews and incident response teams. The centre is wrapped in AAF Evershield® Sovereign Gold. The anodised finish is environmentally outstanding, totally recyclable, non-combustible, coastal graded and comes with 25-year performance warranty.
AAF takes responsibility and simplifies the process through Evershield® AQ Sheet – a smarter, full-service solution to purchase the right sheet for anodised facades. The solution is best used where sheets are specified, and uniformity of finish is of great significance.
Anodised Facades in AAF Evershield® utilise the latest technology to transform the microscopic texture of the surface of the aluminium, as opposed to a surface coating such as paint or powders. When combined with the correct AQ substrate, the result is outstanding durability of the metallic appearance and environmental benefits.
Benefits of specifying Evershield® AQ Sheet
WestConnex network will change the way Sydney gets around for ever and AAF continues to be specified in progressing parts of this ambitious project. We will update shortly as more development avails to the public. In the meantime, please feel free to contact AAF team, should you need unbiased technical advice for your next finishing projects.
