Economic opportunities and greater connectivity

NSW
Jun 6
With crippling congestion providing a drag on productivity, Western Sydney requires better transport links to improve connectivity within the region. CEDA welcomes The Hon. Stuart Ayres MP, Minister for Western Sydney, Minister for WestConnex, and Minister for Sport

Speakers

The Hon. Stuart Ayres MP, Minister for Jobs and Investment, Tourism, and Western Sydney

Event overview

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has promoted the benefits of a 30-minute city in explaining his approach to cities and urban transport.

While the liveability, economic, and social benefits of a 30-minute city are clear, implementing 30 minute cities and enhancing connectivity between economic hubs remains challenging.

Currently, 3 in 4 Western Sydney workers use their cars as the main means of getting to work. While Parramatta has relatively high employment density, less than 10 per cent of workers from Liverpool and Penrith live within 30 minutes of their job.

With crippling congestion providing a drag on productivity, Western Sydney requires better transport links to improve connectivity within the region and new thinking to get beyond a Sydney CBD centric approach to transport planning.

This event will examine:

  • The imperative for greater connectivity and housing density;
  • Major road projects enhancing connectivity between Sydney’s major employment hubs; and
  • Sydney’s three city future; Eastern Harbour City, Central Parramatta River City, and Western City based on around the Badgerys Creek airport development.
