Master Plan 2030 (Interim Metro Review)

Master Plan 2030 is a comprehensive plan guiding the long-term development of Sydney Olympic Park. We review this Plan every five years to ensure it remains relevant as required by NSW Department of Planning and Environment.

Sydney Olympic Park hosted the “best Games ever” and is considered the world-leading example of successful Olympic legacy. The Park will continue to be a major event destination, enhance our environmental and recreational value and provide ongoing support to the development of community and elite sports.

In its next stage of development, Sydney Olympic Park has an important role to play to support the Greater Sydney Commission’s Three Cities approach and has been identified as a “lifestyle” precinct within Greater Parramatta and the Olympic Peninsula.

Master Plan 2030 (Interim Metro Review) is a plan for the revitalisation of Sydney Olympic Park with a vibrant new town centre, educational facilities, shopping precinct, new homes, more jobs, increased open space, increased community facilities and facilitation of a new Metro station. It will enable Sydney Olympic Park to continue to deliver outstanding social, economic and environmental benefits for the people of Sydney and NSW. Major transport infrastructure projects will support the evolution of the precinct and enhance Sydney Olympic Park’s role as a premier destination for cultural, entertainment, recreation and sporting events.

Access to Sydney Olympic Park will be improved and travel times to and from the Sydney and Parramatta CBDs reduced by Sydney Metro West.  Sydney Olympic Park will also be serviced by Stage 2 of Parramatta Light Rail, which will greatly improve access to the Park for residents living in Parramatta and areas north of the Parramatta River.

The Master Plan 2030 (Interim Metro Review) outlines changes to the built form and street network in the area in the Central Precinct of Sydney Olympic Park, which is directly impacted by the new metro station. This includes :

  • Amendments to the planning controls to integrate the Sydney Metro West station into the Central Precinct;
  • Integration of a pedestrian plaza from Olympic Boulevard to the metro station;
  • Location of the bus interchange on Figtree Drive for seamless access through to the Metro station entrances;
  • Refinement of the street hierarchy to provide pedestrian through sites links to the Metro station;
  • Integration and connection of a new Central Urban Park to the Abattoir Precinct;
  • Amendments to the building height controls and other planning controls as necessary.
