The NSW Government, in partnership with state agencies, has constructed a new education and employment precinct in Meadowbank at the current TAFE site. It opened on 26 April 2022.
The Meadowbank Education and Employment Precinct (MEEP) is designed to be a centre of excellence for education and lifelong learning, connecting students to training and employment opportunities. In addition to primary and secondary schools - Meadowbank Public School and Marsden High School - it includes a transformed TAFE NSW Meadowbank with a Multi-Trades and Digital Technology Hub, as well as open space for sport and recreation.

Traffic and Parking Updates in the MEEP
Transport for NSW will be installing school zone signs and line marking on Hermitage Road, Rhodes Street, Mellor Street and Macpherson Street for a new school zone at Meadowbank Public School and Marsden High School, Meadowbank.
The new 40km/h speed limit started on 26 April, when the schools opened.
Work on the school zone will be carried out between Tuesday 19 and Friday 29 April and will include:
- installing new static and flashing school zone signs
- line marking on roads as “40” pavement patches and dragon’s teeth.
Contractors will be on site between Tuesday 19 April and Friday 29 April, weather permitting. Their day work hours will be between 7am and 5pm from Monday to Friday. Their night work hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday. They will not work on Saturdays and public holidays.
Work is not expected to be noisy and they will reduce noise by using the smallest machinery possible for the job and turning off vehicles when not in use. The line marking work will be carried out at night, but this does not require loud machinery, so there should not be any disturbance for residents.
There will be some temporary traffic changes to make sure the work zone is safe. Lane closures will be in place and may cause short delays in travel times.
Please keep to speed limits and follow the direction of traffic controllers and signs. For the latest traffic updates, you can call 132 701, visit livetraffic.com or download the Live Traffic NSW App.
