The State Government has earmarked changes to the Parramatta Road Corridor. Once revitalised as part of the wider WestConnex project, the area could be flanked by clusters of new apartments, commercial offices, and institutional, recreation and community buildings of 6 to 8 storeys in some sections, with higher rise in some other areas.
The WestConnex is a NSW State Government multibillion dollar project, which will be built in three stages. The first to start is the M4 widening, scheduled for completion in 2017. This will link western and south Western Sydney with the city, airport and Port Botany in a 33-kilometre continuous motorway. The entire project is expected to be completed by 2023.

The project represents a bold opportunity arising from the commitment of the State Government to the revitalisation of the Parramatta Road Corridor, which is increasingly seen as a physical barrier and eyesore. Its revitalisation has the potential to deliver 25,000 new homes and 25,000 new jobs over the next 25 years.
