General Information:

Metroad 7 is a shadow of its former self, originally formed from several roads to make the Cumberland Hwy, Metroad 7 used to run from Liverpool to Wahroonga, until the opening of Westlink M7 in December 2005.

The current form of Metroad 7 now takes in only Pennant Hills Road through some of Sydney's wealthier suburbs taking traffic from south and western Sydney to the northern coast of New South Wales by connecting with the Sydney-Newcastle Freeway (National Highway 1, and former F3).

The route consists of 6 lane dual carriageway, passing through commercial and residential areas.
