The cost of a second road tunnel underneath Sydney Harbour is estimated to be $7.2 billion, 9NEWS can reveal.

A leaked Transport for NSW document shows the project’s "Estimated Total Cost" is $7.2 billion, with a proposal for an 80:20 funding model with the Federal Government. 

The document lists a request of $5.76 billion from Canberra to help pay for the project.

The tunnel will link WestConnex at Rozelle, cross under Sydney Harbour between Birchgrove and Waverton, then connect to the Warringah Freeway at North Sydney and the Northern Beaches Tunnel.

The balloon blowing up obesity surgery

  The balloon blowing up obesity surgery Swallowing a balloon could be the key to overcoming obesity thanks to a revolutionary device set to make its mark in the weight loss industry. The tiny device, which is the world's first "swallow-able, non-operative device for permanent weight loss" is being described as a gastric band, without the surgery and costs. Developed by veteran weight loss surgeon Dr Tony Kierath and his son Tom, the IG balloon works by expanding inside the patient's stomach, making them feel fuller for longer."Not only can you not eat as much food, the food that's in your stomach empties slower", Dr Keirath told A Current Affair.

The Cross- Harbor Rail Tunnel (also known as the Cross Harbor Rail Freight Tunnel ) is a proposed freight rail transport tunnel under Upper New York Bay in the Port of New York and New Jersey between northeastern New Jersey and Long Island, including southern and eastern New York City.

Opposition Leader Luke Foley claims the request for federal funding shows the government is struggling to pay for their new projects.

"People deserve to hear an honest account from The Premier. What projects they will deliver, in what order and how they will be paid for," Mr Foley said. 

Government sources say plans requesting federal assistance for the Western Harbour Tunnel were preliminary and they have since decided not to seek any for this project.

However, they may need help on rail projects like the Western Metro. 

"We will be going to the community when we have done our homework on exactly how much those projects will cost and how we are funding them," Premier Gladys Berejiklian said. 

Ms Berejiklian was also non-committal on whether the smoke stacks along many of the motorways being constructed will have pollution filtered. 

The Government claims they are still waiting on advice from the independent Air Quality Advisory Panel.

"We will have world's best standards when it comes to ventilation around our motorways," the Premier said.
