The NEW Parramatta Rd

A massive opportunity for change In late 2014, the State Government announced the New Parramatta Road project, a 20-year urban renewal program covering 8 precincts (Granville, Auburn, Homebush, Burwood, Kings Bay, Taverners Hill, Leichhardt and Camperdown) that will significantly increase the number of people working and living along the corridor.

A-Maze Gone. Bridge To Remain Clear

The Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority (SHFA) has indicated that it will “..not be proceeding at the moment” with the proposed A-Maze garden installation on Pyrmont Bridge.  For now, the bridge will now remain clear for safe passage of walkers and riders.

The Waterloo Link will connect the Bourke St and Bourke Rd separated cycleways

The City of Sydney is preparing to deliver the final section of the Bourke Street cycleway through Waterloo.
