Details of Selected Projects

Public Transport Interchange and Commuter Car Park Program (Transport Infrastructure Development Corporation)

The aim of the project was to assess public transport interchange operations as well as provide a substantial increase in commuter car parking spaces to serve 30 rail stations within the Greater Sydney Region. The upgraded transport interchange facilities and new parking spaces were being developed to promote better access and increased use of the CityRail network. As part of the project, there was an assessment of bus transport, general traffic, bicycle and pedestrian movements, parking and access of the subject sites. Study tasks included:

  • Site inspections of identified rail station sites and surrounding transport interchanges
  • Assessment of existing public transport and traffic conditions at the identified rail station sites
  • Identifying any impacts during construction and operation
  • Identifying any further traffic assessment investigations required for Stage 2 of the project – planning approval and later design and construction
  • Determination of statutory requirements that may affect each site
  • Identifying any alternative sites for further consideration
  • Reporting and formal presentation to client
