Work is underway on a series of projects that will breathe new life into Parramatta Road, revitalising the area between Camperdown and Auburn as part of the NSW Government’s $198 million improvement program.

Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said the Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program would transform the 20 kilometre corridor with new parks, cycleways, plazas and public art.

“Parramatta Road has become a scar through the heart of Sydney – and we have seized the opportunity to heal it,” Mr Stokes said.

“This investment of almost $200 million will renew and revive the corridor and draw people back into the area with new parks, footpaths and cycleways to create green, usable and welcoming space for residents and visitors alike.”

Projects as part of the program include:

“This investment will improve Parramatta Road for the thousands of people who live or work in the area. The program will also support up to 27,000 new homes and 50,000 new jobs in addition to new much-needed open space,” Mr Stokes said.
