Getting Parramatta Moving: Integrating Planning, Funding & Design of Mass Transit Corridors
2 March 2018, 2.00pm–5.10pm
Holiday Inn Parramatta, 18–40 Anderson St, Parramatta

The City of Parramatta is one of Australia’s leading regions, with population growing at twice the pace of the broader Australian economy. Currently home to over 230,000 people, with another 41,000 people to call it home over the next 5 years. This growth in population will be matched by employment opportunities and investment activity of an estimated $10 billion in roads, schools and other public amenities.

People and places need to be connected by fast and reliable transport; many people in Western Sydney cannot reach their work place within 30 minutes. The draft Metropolitan Strategy of Sydney emphasises Parramatta as a focal point for transport network. Parramatta CBD’s Integrated Transport Plan aims to shift reliance on car use towards more sustainable transport options. This seminar will focus on the role of investment in integrated transport to support of the establishment of the “30 Minute City”.

Come along to hear from a panel of experts discuss and explore these topics and much more:

  • What economic and social impact will these significant investments have on Parramatta? Where will the funding come from?
  • What do other countries do with their mass transit systems?
  • A closer look at Parramatta and Olympic Park precinct’s significance
  • Lessons learnt from the Inner West Light Rail/Greenway
  • Where is the Parramatta Light Rail up to? What are the challenges of integrating design and delivery, on time and within budget.
  • What do developers think about Parramatta?
