About the Program

The Central to Eveleigh Urban Transformation and Transport Program aims to progressively transform government-owned land along the rail corridor in the inner city over the next 30 years. It will help to meet current and future needs for local residents and a growing global Sydney by providing new community facilities and open space, a mix of new housing and employment opportunities, and improved connections across the rail corridor.

Central to Eveleigh Snapshot

UrbanGrowth NSW is considering the potential of 80-110 hectares of government owned land. This may see 15,000 - 26,000 additional residents. To ensure a holistic approach to sustainable growth our studies considered the impacts of potential population growth on infrastructure in a wider 500 hectare study area. While this informed our research, our future draft urban transformation strategy will focus on the 80-110 hectares of government owned land in the identified precincts.
