How we have addressed your feedback
We carried out extensive consultation during 2017 and 2018. During this time your feedback has been critical to helping us refine the design and make a number of positive changes to the project, which was presented in the EIS. These changes are outlined below.
Changes in North Sydney
Minimising the construction footprint in St Leonards Park and Anzac Park
Re-locating the ventilation facility to within the Warringah Freeway corridor from its original position
Improving active transport connections by including a dedicated cycleway between Miller Street, Cammeray Park and Falcon Street and improving connections over the Warringah Freeway
Maintaining the connection between the Warringah Freeway and Ernest Street by keeping the Ernest Street ramps
Minimising the impact of our work at the Ridge Street North construction site
Reducing the land we need to use at the Cammeray Golf Course
Retaining more trees and plantings along the northern boundary of the Cammeray Golf Course.
Changes in the Inner West
Working with the original landscape architect, Bruce McKenzie, for Yurulbin Park to develop the original vision for this park
Avoiding impacts to Birchgrove Oval
No spoil transport through Balmain or Birchgrove
Using water transport by barge where possible
Co-locating the ventilation facility at Rozelle Interchange.
Because of this early consultation and your previous feedback, no major changes to the project’s design are proposed as a result of the submissions received.
However, your feedback has been used to further refine the project, key activities and mitigation measures. For more information, please read the submissions report, available here.
