Proposed Alexandria to Moore Park connectivity upgrade community consultation report online
1 MAY 2017
Planning for the proposed future upgrade of the Alexandria to Moore Park road corridor is progressing with the community consultation report now available.
A Roads and Maritime spokesperson said the NSW Government is continuing planning for the upgrade which aims to reduce travel time, improve connectivity and support urban renewal on the southern outskirts of the CBD.
“The southern fringe of the CBD, including Green Square, is being transformed from heavy industrial to commercial and residential use with more than 60,000 residents expected to live in the Green Square area by 2030,” the spokesperson said.
“The Alexandria to Moore Park connectivity upgrade is aiming to improve critical intersections and pinch points in the inner city suburbs of Alexandria, Waterloo and Moore Park and will support nearby urban renewal and transport projects.
“Roads and Maritime Services is investigating improvements in three key areas along this important road corridor including along Euston Road at Alexandria, McEvoy, South Dowling and Lachlan streets at Waterloo and Anzac Parade, Alison Road and Dacey Avenue at Moore Park.
The proposed future upgrade will include improved intersections, new clearways and improved facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.
The spokesperson said Roads and Maritime invited comments on the proposed upgrade late last year and received142 submissions, with the majority submitted via a new online mapping tool.
“The main comments received included the need for clearways along the corridor, concerns about road widening encouraging additional vehicles into the area, the potential impact to local trees and the existing landscape and the need for improvements to pedestrian and cyclist connections.”
The spokesperson said Roads and Maritime thanks the community and stakeholders for taking the time to provide feedback.
“All comments and feedback provided by the community and stakeholders have been carefully considered and used to develop the preliminary concept design,” the spokesperson said.
