M8 or M5? Open Street Map uses M8, but the government and project website specifically name it M5.


Not too sure what is going on there with that press release. Rather sloppy and it seems they haven't entirely updated all parts of the Westconnex website yet. It is definitely M8 and is now on Google Maps too.
