West Ryde Town Centre
West Ryde is located on Victoria Road close to Eastwood and Ryde Town Centres. It is located equi-distant from Sydney CBD, Chatswood and Parramatta. Access to the town centre is primarily via:
- Rail (CityRail Northern Line)
- Road (Victoria Road)
- Bus (with the town centre containing a critical bus interchange and the strategic bus priority corridor of Victoria Road).
A master plan is currently being prepared for the West Ryde Town Centre. It is anticipated that the Master Plan will be finalised by the end of 2010.
The vision for West Ryde under the draft Master Plan is:
A New Identity
Create a new identity for the West Ryde Town Centre as an important place along Victoria Road. The master plan has potential to create a new and attractive character for the West Ryde Town Centre. The intent is to engage more strongly with the wider community about how they see the future of the town centre. The master plan aims to build on the existing character to create attractive and useful public spaces for those who live, work and visit the centre.
Key Public Domain Improvements
Improvements to key public domain areas will see the creation of a series of 'green links', which extend both towards and through the town centre core. Improvements at the core will also be implemented highlighting this area as a pedestrian priority environment as well as increasing permeability and pedestrian accessibility.
Enhanced Existing Open Spaces
Existing open spaces will be enhanced, offering increased amenity to surrounding residential development. New development and increased densities will be focussed at the centre core and in areas of pedestrian activity such as public transport nodes and close to open space areas. Employment uses will be protected and enhanced. The road network and concerns regarding traffic congestion have been taken into consideration in the development of the master plan.
