What is the Central to Eveleigh program?
The Central to Eveleigh Transformation Program is a 30-year project that aims to gradually transform 80 hectares of largely under-used government owned land in and around the rail corridor from Central to Macdonaldtown and Erskineville stations.
Local residents have told us they love the diversity, creativity and friendliness of the local area and how close it is to the city. We want to build on these great strengths and harness them as an opportunity to shape the future of the area.
Where is the program area?
The project extends for a 3 kilometres and includes Central and Redfern Stations, Australia Technology Park, Eveleigh Rail Yards and the airspace above railway lines. To ensure the program takes into consideration potential impacts on the surrounding areas, a wider study area has been defined in approximately a ten minute walking catchment around the corridor.
Council: City of Sydney
We are currently looking at how best to build on the strengths of the area, including great access to public transport, job opportunities and internationally recognised educational and health facilities close to the city centre. This will set the stage for the future urban transformation into one of the most creative and liveable places close to the inner city.
Central to Eveleigh can make a significant contribution to meeting the current and future needs of a growing community by creating improved connections across the rail corridor. The project will also offer community facilities, open spaces and a diverse range of housing and employment opportunities.
Urban Transformation Strategy
We are working closely with other government agencies, the community and the City of Sydney to develop an urban transformation strategy for the corridor. The strategy will contain aspirations for the area, alongside key design and planning principles, urban strategies for places, networks and neighbourhoods and consolidated framework plan and staging for different parts of the corridor.
