Barangaroo has no comparable project in Australia. This is due to the scale of the project and its unique combination of urban renewal, property development, creation of cultural and entertainment areas, mixed use deployment, creation of large scale passive and active recreational areas in a harbourside CBD location. When completed, more than 23,000 people are expected to live and work at Barangaroo, and another 33,000 people will visit every day.
A project of this scale requires innovative transport solutions.
Barangaroo will use the world's best practice approach to sustainable transport. To reach our sustainability targets, 96% of people will catch public transport, cycle or walk to Barangaroo.
Barangaroo Integrated Transport Plan
The Barangaroo Integrated Transport Plan was released on 30 August 2012, which outlines a range of transport actions for the first occupancy in Barangaroo in 2015. A Taskforce, led by Transport for NSW, developed the plan. Members of the Taskforce included the Director General of Transport for NSW and representatives from the Department of Planning and Infrastructure, Department of Premier and Cabinet, Infrastructure New South Wales, the Barangaroo Delivery Authority, City of Sydney and Lend Lease.

The Barangaroo Integrated Transport Plan addresses a range of transport modes and recommends actions in the areas of walking, cycling, traffic and taxi access, Wynyard Bus Interchange, ferry services, light rail and bus services, Wynyard Station upgrades, rail capacity and a Transport Square Interchange on the western foreshore of the CBD.
The Plan intends to satisfy the first occupancy of Barangaroo, as well as longer term initiatives taking into account the ongoing growth across the Northern CBD.
The Plan recommends that short term initiatives and detailed planning for longer term initiatives should commence immediately.
