Epping is a strategic centre with existing access to transport infrastructure and employment hubs. Epping was selected as an Urban Activation Precinct and land in the Epping Town Centre precinct was rezoned for higher residential densities.
A combination of intersection upgrades and the Epping Bridge widening were the recommended infrastructure upgrades to support the existing and forecast growth in Epping Town Centre. The intersection upgrades were completed in 2018 but widening Epping Bridge is a missing piece in the road infrastructure improvement in Epping Town Centre.
The Project aims to upgrade road infrastructure to support the existing housing development stemming from the Urban Activation Precinct Program, and within the study area is an existing service building with an adjacent chiller unit for the Sydney Metro North West line. In order to widen Epping Bridge, the chiller unit will need to be relocated as part of the early works prior to construction of the bridge.
TfNSW's objectives for the Project are to relocate the chiller, pump and storage tank with pipework modified to suit the new location, and power, controls, water and drainage extended to the new location as well.
