Lachlan's Line

A vibrant community, close to the city, jobs and sought-after amenities

Lachlan’s Line is the new gateway to Macquarie Park’s employment corridor with new housing close to North Ryde Station.

Our vision is to transform a redundant industrial site into an attractive, publicly accessible and connected local destination with apartments, high quality open spaces, parks, playgrounds and retail spaces.

We are leading delivery of Lachlan’s Line in partnership with the private sector.

About the project

Lachlan’s Line forms the northern end of the North Ryde Station Precinct announced by the NSW Government in September 2013. It is located between North Ryde and Macquarie Park stations.

The former industrial site will demonstrate excellence in sustainable development with around 2,700 homes for around 5,000 residents, open spaces, parks, play areas and retail facilities being provided close to two train stations, bus services, and the M2 Motorway.

Landcom prepared the masterplan for Lachlan's Line and is building infrastructure to support the new community.  Before the first residents move in we have:

  • built high quality open spaces, parks and playgrounds
  • rehabilitated the creek line
  • spent around $17.2m widening Delhi Road to ease local traffic impacts
  • allocated Affordable Housing for very low, low and moderate income earners, which will be delivered in future stages.

The project demonstrates excellence in sustainability by: 

  • delivering a transit oriented development that encourages walking and cycling and reduces reliance on cars for travel
  • adopting a ‘precinct–wide’ approach to stormwater management to reduce stormwater discharge, improve water quality and minimise water consumption
  • retaining approximately half a hectare of bushland and rehabilitates more than 4,300m2 of previously contaminated land in Ryde’s Porters Creek catchment.

Greenland Australia is delivering a mixed-use area which includes 879 apartments, a supermarket and other shops, public spaces, a medical centre and gym. Residents are expected to start moving into this development later this year.

Bridge shot March 2020

Current works

Pedestrian and cycle bridge

We have finished installing the four bridge segments.

We are now undertaking landscaping and pavement upgrades near the bridge heads, and installing bridge features, such as throw-screens, handrails and lighting.

This work has taken longer than expected due to recent wet weather. We now expect to open the bridge in May 2020.

Upcoming out of hours work

From March to May 2020 there will be times we work out of hours, primarily on the southern side of Delhi Road and on the bridge itself over Delhi Road and the M2 Motorway. We will work between 8:00pm and 5:30am on these nights.

Construction activities may include:

  • Welding
  • Cutting and grinding
  • Installing and finalising bridge features, such as throw-screens
  • Removing temporary structures and scaffolding
  • Pavement upgrades
  • Landscaping and finishing works.

These works may be noisy at times. We will make every effort to protect the community and minimise impacts on nearby residents.
