The construction industry is bouncing back strongly, and the NSW Government is committed to funding infrastructure projects to keep people in jobs and improve transport, housing and access to essential services for all NSW residents. There are a number of projects which the NSW Government wishes to fast-track, and in this blog post Brix Projects will be sharing 5 of them. In total, the 13 projects are expected to inject around $4.3 billion into the NSW economy and create around 8,400 new job opportunities.
- Revamp of Kensington to Kingsford Light Rail Corridor
The Kensington to Kingsford Light Rail Corridor is designed to improve public transportation options for all Sydney residents. It is expected that this service will operate 7 days a week and run from 5am through to 1am, offering reliable, high capacity services for commuters and tourists alike. This will make it quick and easy to reach Kensington and Kingsford, which will also be receiving $385 million towards town centre development.
- Renewal of Blacktown CBD
$1.1 Billion will be put towards a renewal of the Blacktown CBD, with much of the land being rezoned to B4 Mixed Use and B3 Commercial Core. Building heights will increase, and there will be a focus on achieving design excellence. This is one of the key projects which the NSW Government is keen to fast track in an attempt to stimulate construction and provide a boost to the economy. The transformation will take place over the course of a decade, with a new university, 4 star hotels, shops and dining to look forward to.
- Crows Nest Metro Station
The $370 million Crows Nest Metro Station will commence construction in 2021, and is due for completion by 2024. It will be the first stop for all metro services departing from Chatswood towards the Sydney CBD, which will turn up every 4 minutes to enable quick and efficient transport for all users. Hundreds of new jobs are expected to be created, and at peak of construction around 300 people will be on site at any given time.
- Improved Freight Rail Capacity (South Sydney – Botany Bay)
$273 million will be invested to increase rail capacity to Port Botany, which will improve both reliability and the amount of goods which can be transported. Port Botany is a highly important port for Sydney, and it is expected that freight will increase by 77% by 2036. In total the Australian Government has pledged $400 million to meet the increase in demand, and the funds will be distributed across the Botany Rail Duplication and Cabramatta Loop projects.
NSW will soon have a $49.6 million cricket centre providing year-round training, admin, car parking, community facilities, landscaping, public domain works and facilities to support regional and metropolitan cricketers. This will be the home of cricket in NSW, and it will also support junior cricketers in addition to providing beneficial health, educational and social outcomes.
