Epping Town Centre is one of eight precincts under the NSW Government’s Urban Activation Precincts Program 2013, which aims to deliver more homes in places with access to infrastructure, transport, services and jobs.
In 2013, the Department of Planning and Environment released the Epping Town Centre Structure Plan to support the urban activation of the Epping Town Centre precinct. The structure plan followed the 2011 Epping Town Centre study that was carried out by the Department of Planning and Environment, Hornsby Shire Council and Parramatta City Council. This study identified a number of issues with the existing road network, including traffic congestion and delays.
As a result of this work, Roads and Maritime Services has received funding to improve road infrastructure in the area.
Roads and Maritime is delivering two projects in Epping Town Centre to support the development of this precinct:
- Project 1: Upgrading the Beecroft Road and Carlingford Road intersection
- Project 2: Widening Epping Road westbound between Blaxland Road and Essex Street, including the upgrade of the intersection at Epping Road and Essex Street.
The Epping Town Centre road projects aim to:
- improve traffic flow and road safety,
- improve pedestrian access, and
- help reduce traffic delays and congestion.
