The NSW Government's proposal to build a pedestrian and bike bridge over Anzac Parade at Moore Park is currently on exhibition.
The proposed bridge is located adjacent to Gregory Avenue, between the Arthur Street and Parkham Street pedestrian bridges over South Dowling Street. It is designed to cater for large crowds walking between Central Station and the sports stadia.
I'm concerned the proposal in its current form will look like a large round building in Moore Park west. The community has repeatedly had to fight to protect Moore Park and I've asked the Roads and Maritime Services to consider a design that will minimise the impact on parkland.
The current proposal involves large circular ramps - known as helix ramps - in Moore Park east and west. As currently proposed the bridge does not connect with the paths on Anzac Parade.
The review of environmental factors (REF) is on exhibition until 13 April. You can see the proposal online here www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roadprojects/projects/sydney_region/southern_sydney/shared_path_bridge/index.html and I encourage you to make a submission.
