We have identified and assessed two options for the location of temporary construction support facilities around Haberfield/Ashfield:

  • Option A would utilise Wattle Street civil and tunnel site, Haberfield civil and tunnel site and Northcote Street civil site
  • Option B would utilise Parramatta Road West civil and tunnel site, Haberfield civil site and Parramatta Road East civil site.

Changes to traffic routes

We expect there would be minimal modifications to the road network or pedestrian and cyclist facilities for either route. Unless outlined below, alternative routes and diversions would be determined by the contractor in consultation with the council and community.

  • If Option A is selected, Northcote Street in Haberfield would be temporarily closed at the intersection with Parramatta Road for the duration of construction.  Once construction is complete, the Northcote Street / Parramatta Road intersection would be reinstated.
  • At the Northcote Street civil site, there would be temporary closure of a section of footpath on both sides of Northcote Street. Alternative access for pedestrians to Parramatta Road would be provided via Ash Lane and either Wolseley Street or Wattle Street.
