Lane Cove Rd & Waterloo Rd intersection, Macquarie Park


Project overview

The Australian Government and NSW Government are upgrading the intersection as part of a $240 million investment to support economic growth and create jobs, getting Australians back to work sooner following the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Transport for NSW is starting work on the intersection of Lane Cove Road and Waterloo Road at Macquarie Park to improve bus travel through the intersection, reduce congestion and improve travel times.

Project information


We consulted the community on this proposal in 2017, as part of Stage Two of the Macquarie Park Bus Priority and Capacity Program. A submissions report (PDF, 14.9Mb) was released in October 2017.

In September 2022, work will commence on the Lane Cove Road and Waterloo Road intersection upgrade to:

  • provide a new 170 metre dedicated bus only right turn lane from Waterloo Road onto Lane Cove Road south
  • provide a new 70 metre westbound through lane on Waterloo Road
  • extend the northbound left hand turn slip lane from Lane Cove Road onto Waterloo Road
  • extend the left turn lane from Waterloo Road eastbound onto Lane Cove Road.

We expect to complete this project in late 2024.


This intersection upgrade will help reduce congestion, meaning less time stuck in traffic and more time to spend with family and friends and doing the things you love.

The benefits for community and customers are:

  • improve the reliability of bus services and reduce travel time
  • improve traffic flow around Macquarie Park
  • ease congestion and improve travel times for all road users during peak periods
  • improve pedestrian safety by providing new and improved crossing
  • cater for future growth in bus services
  • improve connections between bus services and the Macquarie Park Metro Stations
  • help make Macquarie Park an even better place to live, work and study.

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.
