The Newcastle Urban Renewal Strategy, released in 2012, included a range of initiatives to revitalise Hunter Street and improve links between the city centre and the waterfront.
One of the major renewal initiatives currently underway is Newcastle Light Rail which includes the delivery of a new transport interchange at Wickham. Together, these initiatives are set to revitalise Newcastle and are part of the Newcastle Urban Renewal and Transport Program.
In early 2014 the NSW Government announced plans to build a new transport interchange at Wickham, west of Stewart Avenue. The construction of a fully-accessible transport interchange at Wickham will enable customers to easily connect with trains, light rail, buses, taxis and cars.
This work will allow for the future development of Newcastle Light Rail and will help to reconnect the city with the foreshore.
