Alexandria to Moore Park Connectivity Upgrade
The NSW Government is investigating key intersection improvements to reduce travel time, improve connectivity and support urban renewal on the southern outskirts of the CBD.
The Alexandria to Moore Park road corridor currently serves the function of a southern CBD priority bypass route to reduce congestion within the CBD. Road capacity and access improvements will be required to reduce existing congestion and support substantial nearby urban renewal and transport projects.
The Alexandria to Moore Park connectivity upgrade includes improvements at critical intersections and pinch points in the inner city suburbs of Alexandria, Waterloo and Moore Park and can be divided into three areas:
- Euston Road (at Maddox Street), Alexandria to McEvoy Street (at Young Street), Waterloo
- McEvoy Street (at Young Street) to Lachlan Street and South Dowling Street, Waterloo
- Anzac Parade, Alison Road and Dacey Avenue, Moore Park.
The corridor strategy map in the project update shows the key features in each of these three areas.
What is happening now?
Roads and Maritime recognises the importance of involving the community in the development of the Alexandria to Moore Park connectivity upgrade and hosted a community drop in session on December 7 from 6pm – 8pm where the community had the opportunity to speak with members of the project team and ask questions.
Feedback on the proposed Alexandria to Moore Park connectivity upgrade was received from 30 November to 16 December 2016 via email, phone, the online mapping tool or directly to the project team at the drop in session held on 7 December 2016.
View the online mapping tool to read the variety of comments directly received during the recent consultation period to see what others in the community had to say about the road corridor.
What happens next?
Roads and Maritime are currently compiling a community consultation report to respond to feedback received from the community during the consultation in December. The report will be available on the website in the coming months.
Roads and Maritime is also preparing the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) to examine the potential impacts of the proposed upgrade and outline measures to reduce and manage the impacts.
The REF is expected to be placed on display for community and stakeholder comment in mid 2017.
