Centennial Parklands is working with the NSW Government and other key stakeholders to deliver better access to public transport, more greenspace, and improved sporting facilities for Moore Park East.
Announced in October 2018, the project will deliver an enhanced public domain in Moore Park East in line with the Moore Park Master Plan 2040.
The project will improve the public transport interchange alongside Tramway Oval with the removal of the current large concrete bus structures and replacement with more modern, subtle structures, closer to Anzac Parade.
By relocating the bus loop from its current site near Driver Avenue to closer to Anzac Parade, safer and more delineated routes will be created for crowds dispersing from games at Moore Park to improved pathways accessing both bus loop and new Light Rail stop.
It will also ensure a better experience for local teams and athletes accessing sporting and entertainment facilities used by the community all year round.
Works will involve removing the current bus loop around Tramway Oval and creating a new loop that is more sympathetic to provide public transport improvements in the area.
Tramway Oval will be reconfigured and realigned closer to Driver Avenue near the Tibby Cotter Bridge.
Importantly, the project will deliver an increase and return of green space and enhanced facilities for high performance and community sport in Moore Park East as outlined in the key features and deliverables of the Moore Park Master Plan.
The project will deliver:
more efficient bus nodes and bus loop
removal of the current concrete bus shelters and install new and improved sympathetic ones
new turf, irrigation, drainage, lighting and goal posts
new pavement and landscaping works
improved park lighting in the area for public safety
improved wayfinding and signage for Parklands visitors.
In planning and authorising the delivery of this project the Parklands has fulfilled all its obligations under both the NSW Environmental Planning & Assessment Act and the NSW Heritage Act.
Site establishment and works will commence from Monday 26 November 2018, with project completion in mid-2019.
Bus loop and transport changes for summer events
From Saturday 22 December 2018, Moore Park event shuttle buses will drop off and pick up from the northern end of Driver Avenue instead of the Moore Park bus station while the new bus terminal is constructed under this new project.
Signage, wayfinding staff and bus marshals will be on-site to assist with the change.
This will cause some congestion for patrons accessing the upper Kippax (EP2) car park to and from Moore Park Road.
Patrons attending any events at the stadiums are encouraged to arrive early for matches and utilise public transport options where possible.
