Macquarie Park


Project overview

Macquarie Park is one of Sydney’s largest business districts, and a rapidly growing residential and commercial precinct.

Macquarie trainstation

The Australian Government and NSW Government are investing nearly $200 million to improve transport in Macquarie Park and help create a vibrant green ‘heart’ for the precinct.

Macquarie Park is one of Sydney’s largest business districts, and a rapidly growing residential and commercial precinct. It needs public spaces and paths for people, and a road network and bus system to support that growth and provide the transport connections that are vital for economic activity and social connection.  

Buses are a key part of Sydney's growing and evolving public transport network. Sydney's buses provide more than 220 million trips a year across the city. As Sydney grows, the bus system needs to meet the challenges that growth brings.

This work will support Macquarie Park's growth, ensuring we can meet the area's future transport needs, while guaranteeing Macquarie Park remains a great place to live, work, study and play.
