VICTORIA ROAD & OVERFLOW CAR PARK CHANGES
During January and February 2019
There are three important projects that may impact your travel arrangements to our North Parramatta offices during January and February 2019. These changes will be occurring on the corner of Victoria Road and O’Connell Street and at the Overflow Car Park.
From 1 February 2019
As part of the State Government’s Parramatta light rail works, Transport for NSW (TfNSW) will be closing Victoria Road at the O’Connell Street intersection from 1 February at 8pm.
This construction work includes utility relocation, intersection upgrades, new traffic lights, landscaping, and changes to street lanes and parking.
Work that is needed will be carried out outside of normal business hours, typically at night and early morning, ending by 5am.
We have been assured by TfNSW that all vehicle access to the Overflow Car Park will be maintained at all times.
These works will be a temporary inconvenience for approximately 2 weeks only.
Overflow Car Park
From 1 February 2019
To accommodate the new light rail, TfNSW has compulsorily acquired a small parcel of land owned by the Diocese of Parramatta in order to widen the intersection of Victoria Road and O’Connell Street.
This land is currently used as the northern end of Overflow Car Park along Victoria Road.
The car park will instead shift southwards by approximately five metres from 1 February 2019. Only the current car parking spots that run directly parallel to Victoria Road will be affected.
To accommodate these changes, new spots will be created at the southern end of the carpark along the boundary fence with the public school.
This is a permanent change to the Overflow Car Park.
14 – 28 January 2019
The Diocese of Parramatta’s property department will be conducting some minor heritage investigative work from 14 January to 28 January 2019 at the Overflow Car Park.
The work will involve some small one metre excavation sites – only one or two at a time – taking place across various locations in the car park.
These works are temporary and are expected to run for approximately 2 weeks only.
