Overview of SCATL project stages

January 2023 update 

Transport would like to announce Sydney Civil as the construction partner for Stage 2 East construction. Preliminary work will commence from February 2023 across the site from the Kingsway at Jackson Avenue, Miranda to Denman Avenue and Gannons Road in Caringbah. 

Local residents and traffic can expect minor work including; setting up a site compound on the north-east corner of Sylvania Road and the Kingsway, Miranda, as well as the placement of road safety controls. This work should not significantly impact normal traffic or pedestrian flow. A work schedule has not yet been completed for the main construction works and Transport will keep the community informed as more information becomes available. 

Design and investigation work continues for Stage 2 West. A preferred route is expected to be ready for display and consultation mid-2023. At this time a new design and route will be released to the public. Information sessions will be held for the public to attend. Further details will be available closer to the release date. 

SCATL Stage 3 is due to commence initial planning and design in 2023.

Project history

Stage 1 opened in April 2020, delivering a 1.3km Active Transport Link between Sutherland and Kirrawee.

The Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for Stage 1 was on display from between 15 October to 2 November 2018. Planning approval was received in December 2018. The Determination Report provides responses to issues raised in submissions made during the exhibition period, and outlines the conditions of approval.

From the 19th April until 17th May 2021, Transport for NSW sought feedback from the community on the early concept design. A Facebook Livestream was held on Thursday 22 April to answer question and hear what others had to say about the project.This event was recorded, and is available for viewing via the Facebook event. Additionally, 2 community drop in sessions were held on 26 April and 5 May 2021.
