2022 Carlingford and Epping Neighbourhood Travel Survey

The 2022 survey is now open and we invite residents who live in the study area to join the 2022 project. Read more and complete the survey at Participate Parramatta.

City of Parramatta has again partnered with Western Sydney Local Health District to create a short survey exploring how residents travel around their suburb and what they think about their neighbourhood. 

For the fourth and final year, the focus of our Carlingford and Epping Neighbourhood Travel Survey is in the study area bound by Carlingford Road, Midson Road, Marsden Road, Pennant Hills Road, Jenkins Road and Moseley Street. Please see the map of the study area below.

The survey investigates the link between neighbourhood amenity – our parks, street-trees, local roads, footpaths, cycle paths, transport options – and health, and looks at how people in the area currently travel around their neighbourhood. 

We’re also checking-in to see if anything has changed in the last 12 months, particularly as we’ve all had to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2022 Carlingford and Epping Neighbourhood Travel Survey can be completed in English, Korean and Simplified Chinese. Your answers will be anonymous and reported as an overall result of the study.

To thank you for your time, you can enter the draw to win one of 10 x $50 gift cards.

The 2021 Carlingford and Epping Neighbourhood Travel Survey closes midnight Monday 5 December 2022. For more information and to complete the survey, see Participate Parramatta.

Carlingford and Epping Neighbourhood Travel Survey - a four-year study


In late 2019, City of Parramatta joined with Western Sydney Local Health District to launch the first of a four-year study into how people moved about their neighbourhood. To help guide future work, we wanted to understand how residents felt about their neighbourhood and to explore how modes of travel affected their health and social interactions.

Thousands of residents have engaged with the study. To find out what we heard, and to learn about some of the improvements we’ve already made to the neighbourhood, read the newsletters (available in English, Korean and Simplified Chinese) on Participate Parramatta

What have we heard and what upgrades have happened so far?

Since our first survey in 2019, Council has used the information you’ve shared with us to plan neighbourhood improvements including installing more than 2km footpaths, creating shared paths and separated cycleways, improving pedestrian access, planting more than 100 trees, and upgrading local parks and green spaces.     
Some of the work we’ve done in the study area includes:

  • more than 100 trees have been planted.

  • installed a new shared path on the eastern side of Marsden Road and through Talinga Park
