Transport

Central to Eveleigh is well served with four heavy rail stations and a bus network that provides good north-south connections, and we can improve the connectivity between these services and make it easier to move about the area.

By renewing Central Station, building a new Sydney Metro station at Waterloo, and investigating the renewal of Redfern Station, the NSW Government will look at how to improve connections to work and day-to-day activities, reduce the need for parking and encourage the trend towards decreasing car use. By combining very high public transport service levels, a local street network set up for easy walking and bike riding, and many parks and day-to-day services close by, we can also encourage walking and cycling.

Ideally, owning a car will be seen by most as a luxury rather than a necessity. We do, however, face challenges of the inner city, with peak hour congestion and regional as well as local traffic travelling through and around the area. We are working closely with Transport for NSW to investigate how to best address these issues. 

Low car ownership

The homes and working spaces we want to create should have a very low requirement for a car compared to the Sydney average. This outcome has great benefits for Sydney – road congestion across Sydney is minimised, the cost of owning a car is avoided, carbon emissions are reduced and importantly people are more physically active due to an increase in walking and bike riding for day-to-day activities.
