About the Lachlan's Line Project

Lachlan’s Line forms the northern end of the North Ryde Station Precinct announced by the NSW Government in September 2013. Landcom is the site masterplan developer.

Our role is to deliver all the required civil and lead-in infrastructure and services including roads, public domain, open spaces, parks, play areas, public art, and a pedestrian and cycle bridge connecting North Ryde Station to the precinct.

During and after the completion of the civil and landscaping works, our intention is to release serviced super-lot development parcels for predominately future housing supply.

What is proposed

Lachlan’s Line is a masterplanned community that will be the gateway to the Macquarie Park employment corridor, between the North Ryde and Macquarie Park train stations. The precinct will feature residential apartments, high quality open spaces, parks, playgrounds and retail spaces. 

The precinct has potential to be one of Sydney’s largest and most successful transit oriented developments. The vision for Lachlan’s Line is to transform a redundant industrial site into a quality, publicly accessible and connected local destination.

Pedestrian and cycle bridge

The $40 million bridge will provide safe and easy access for pedestrians and cyclists between Lachlan’s Line, North Ryde Station and jobs in Macquarie Park. The 160m, 280t bridge has a unique double helix design and is the first of its kind in the world due to its complex design. It will be made out of 32mm flat plate steel which twists and contorts to achieve the desired form.

In response to feedback from the City of Ryde and the community, and with input from our recently appointed contractor, the Arenco / Daracon Joint Venture, we have been able to modify the design to reduce impact on existing trees.

To minimise construction impacts, the bridge will be largely pre-fabricated off site and assembled in stages. The M2 Motorway will need to be temporarily closed at night on several occasions to enable installation and we are carefully planning works to minimise impacts on traffic. The community will be notified of temporary traffic changes before works start.

We anticipate the bridge will open in late 2019.
