Event overview

As Australia's global city enters an unprecedented period of transport construction, efforts are being made to minimise impacts on Sydney businesses, workers, visitors and residents through a period of major disruption.

Marg Prendergast has been appointed CBD Coordinator-General to manage transport and traffic impacts over the next four years as the CBD Light Rail is built from Circular Quay to Randwick, in conjunction with other major construction projects, including Barangaroo, Darling Harbour, and Wynyard Station.

With major construction disrupting the CBD, Transport for NSW is taking proactive measures to ensure that all stakeholders are aware of the challenges ahead and are communicating to Sydneysiders to brace for disruption that will lead to a better Sydney for all.

CEDA first Breakfast on the Run event for 2016 will examine:

  • Responding to challenges and key steps taken to mitigate disruption during the construction of transformation projects in Sydney's CBD;
  • Collaboration and engagement strategies for business, commuters and visitors to Sydney; and
  • Realising the benefits of transformation transport projects that will drive productivity, network efficiency and economic growth for Australia's largest CBD and global city.

This event is a CEDA member only event. Registrations are exclusively available to CEDA members.
