The Lake Macquarie Transport Interchange: Fact or Fiction?
The Lake Macquarie Transport Interchange has unanimous support from Hunter Councils and industry groups as the region’s highest priority infrastructure project.
Construction of Pennant Street Bridge – over the Great Northern Railway Line – is the next stage; the “missing link” that will unlock 90 hectares of new employment land and turbocharge housing supply around the emerging strategic centre of Cardiff-Glendale.
A range of new policies and programs to ease the housing affordability crisis are expected to dominate the state budget in mid-June, and a united Hunter calls on the NSW Government to include $13 million towards joint State-Federal funding, so the promise of 2,700 new homes, 3,800 new jobs, improved live-ability and better environmental outcomes can be delivered.
May Hunter Lunch makes the case for next-stage funding and explores the future of Cardiff-Glendale as the Hunter’s next employment super-hub.
