Project overview

The Australian and NSW Governments are funding this work to improve public transport in Macquarie Park, ease congestion and improve travel times.

Traffic on the road

Project information


In early 2023 Transport finished work to improved three intersections on Herring Road at Epping Road, Ivanhoe Place and Waterloo Road to support Macquarie Park’s growth, ensuring we can meet the area’s future transport needs.

Improvements to Herring Road was part of a $240 million investment by Australian and State Governments to support economic growth and create jobs, getting Australians back to work sooner following the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This work was originally included in Stage Two of the Macquarie Park Bus Priority and Capacity Improvements.

Aboriginal engagement - Respect to the Wattamattagal

On Wednesday 10 June, Transport for NSW and Georgiou Group participated in a smoking ceremony to acknowledge and pay respect to the Wattamattagal of the Darug Nation. The Wattamattagal are the custodians of the land in Macquarie Park, where we are upgrading the Lane Cove and Waterloo Road intersection.

The smoking ceremony placed Aboriginal traditions and culture at the forefront of our work activities and was a meaningful way to recognise the history and culture of the land and a channel to reunite with our Indigenous partners.

Brendan Kerin from the Local Metropolitan Aboriginal Lands Council conducted the ceremony where team members washed in the smoke to cleanse the mind, body and land. The smoke is believed to have the ability to ward off bad spirits. It also lets the ancestors and spirits know of a gathering on country, it promotes visitors' protection and well-being to the land and creates a pathway to a brighter future.
