Eastern River Foreshore Transformation

City of Parramatta is pleased to announce that the Eastern River Foreshore will be transformed to include a separated cycleway and pedestrian path as part of the NSW Stronger Community Fund - Major Projects Program.  The NSW Government established the Stronger Communities Fund to provide amalgamated councils with funding to kick start the delivery of projects that improve community infrastructure and services.

This project involves separating walking and cycling into dedicated paths along the northern foreshore of the Parramatta Valley Cycleway in Ermington and Rydalmere. The project also involves embellishing both paths with elements that promote safety, comfort and interest to create quality spaces, as well as an amenities block.

As part of this, we invite your feedback on a review of environmental factors (REF) for this project.

The review of environmental factors covers:

  • engineering, environmental and planning factors
  • design and operational requirements
  • construction impacts and risk mitigation strategies
  • impacts on flora and fauna
  • legislative requirements and approvals.

Please submit your feedback in writing to placeservices@cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au or call 9806 8188.

Submissions are open until 5pm on Friday 9 November 2018.

We will consider all feedback and report the outcomes to Council. If the proposal is approved, we will start work on the final design and construction.

This project is separate from the Rydalmere Wharf upgrade led by Transport for New South Wales.
