West Ryde Commuter Carpark

As part of a NSW-wide vision for an integrated multi-modal transport network, West Ryde Commuter Carpark has been upgraded to have 160 car spaces adjacent to the railway station, providing park and ride options for commuters and reducing congestion on our roads. Located opposite the distinctive Ryedale Road Heritage Conservation Area featuring an intact row of 1920s shopfronts, the design fits sensitively within the urban context.

A detailed traffic analysis informed a more efficient circulation planning, increasing the car spaces by 80% while integrating significant new zones for landscaping. Water saving urban design (WSUD) principles are integrated, with a drainage swale collecting and retaining water. Plant selections vary across the site in response to the visual egress and safety requirements of mature plants, while also carefully considering water, hardiness, biodiversity and the surrounding plant context. Ground cover grass and shrub species across the site are a maximum height of one metre with larger screening shrubs and trees along the edge of the rail corridor.

New lighting, wayfinding, signage, boom gates, fencing, bicycle hoops and footpaths provide a safer and more pleasurable experience for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians, improving access to both the station and the shopping strip.
