Sydney Metro Chatswood-Sydenham EIS on exhibition
12 May 2016
The Environmental Impact Statement for the Chatswood to Sydenham section of Sydney Metro is now on public exhibition. Waterloo Station would be located on Cope Street between Raglan and Wellington streets.
UrbanGrowth NSW, Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) and the Sydney Metro team are working closely to create a great future for Waterloo. The Metro station at Waterloo would be a catalyst for a Waterloo transformation program to regenerate social housing, and support greater residential development and urban renewal. In addition a Metro station at Waterloo would connect the Australian Technology Park and the residents in the Waterloo and Redfern areas with the Sydney Metro line.
The public can now have a say on the Environmental Impact Statement until 27 June 2016 for the Chatswood to Sydenham section of the Sydney Metro (Stage 2). For more information about the Sydney Metro and how to make a submission visit the website or contact 1800 171 386. The Metro team is also hosting an information session in Redfern and you can drop in any time to ask questions.
Date: Saturday 4 June 2016
Time: 10am to 2pm
Location: Redfern Oval, 51 Redfern Street, Redfern
This is one of a number of projects already proposed in and around Waterloo. These include the redevelopment of government land around Central to Eveleigh and broader social housing initiatives including Communities Plus. These projects involve multiple government agencies and communities.
UrbanGrowth NSW has been engaged by LAHC to develop a masterplan for the Waterloo Estate. In the near future UrbanGrowth NSW with LAHC will reach out to stakeholders and communities to refine a shared vision for Waterloo, raise awareness about the project, and build understanding of masterplanning and its role. This will involve workshops, drop-in sessions and briefings over 18 months.
