PM announces Macquarie Park $100M interchange
The Turnbull and Berejiklian governments have announced the construction of a major new interchange at Macquarie Park. The interchange will result in faster and smoother transitions between buses, trains and taxis.
The state-of-the art interchange aims to make commuting to the second largest economic centre in NSW easier for the those that make the 40,000 train and 19,500 bus trips to and from the precinct each day.
According to the PM's release the $100 million investment will ensure the construction of a new bus interchange connecting Macquarie University and Macquarie Centre, improving access to transport options.
“This interchange is a game-changer for peak-hour commuters who travel to and from Macquarie Park every day. It will provide faster, safer and easier transitions between various transport options,” the PM said.
Liberal candidate for Bennelong John Alexander said the interchange would improve traffic flow around Macquarie Centre and Macquarie University, and reduce congestion for local motorists. Bill Shorten and Kristina Kenneally later added their support to the initiative announcing they would match funding, if elected in 2019.
Connect looks forward to partnering with TfNSW and the Federal Government in consultation with the business community before the final design is confirmed.
