Please be aware that most motorways use electronic passes. If you do not have an account already, it is  advised you open an occasional account.  Westlink M7 connects the west by providing an uninterrupted journey between the M2, M4 and M5 motorways.

Westlink M7 is a fully electronic electronic toll road with no toll booths.

Westlink bypasses 48 sets of traffic lights – changing forever the way people travel around Western Sydney.

Westlink uses a distance based tolling system. 

All existing electronic tags are accepted. To get a Roam e-TAG please call 13 TOLL (13 86 55).

For occasional use of Westlink M7, you will need the innovative Roam e-PASS account, where your number plate is photographed as you travel past a toll point and matched against your e-PASS details. For more information call 13 TOLL (13 86 55) or go to their website (click the link above)

MARI logo

M.A.R.I is a program developed at St Vincents Hospital in Sydney.                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
      It stands for Motorcycle Accident Rehabilitation Initiative and was started after a generous donation from two  extraordinary               human beings who happened to be motorcyclists and have ridden the majority of the world twice on their |BMW R50.                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

     They came home and wrote a book on their adventures along with photos and sold it. The money raised was then donated to the          hospital to get things rolling towards helping riders that have crashed.  This took place after the past 8 plus years.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Now M.A.R.I has representatives throughout Australia helping riders that have passed through the doors of an Emergency         
     Department and need medical assistance and a hand from a fellow rider as well.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

  These days the M.A.R.I Team manage an off shoot called the Dr Wings Bike Force.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
This group of individuals are volunteers helping other riders with the guidance of the MARI team and hospital staff throughout
     the  country.
