Concept Design – Surface works – for Parramatta Rail Link
AILA Merit Award for Planning in Landscape Architecture
The Parramatta Rail Link’s Surface Works project at Chatswood and Epping achieves an important interface between the new generation of rail infrastructure and the existing surface rail corridor.
The urban design guidelines, prepared for Parramatta Rail Link (now TIDC) by Hill Thalis, Aspect Sydney and Richard Goodwin working in association, represent the rail corridor in its urban context to express a place specific urban strategy. The team presented a holistic strategy for the rail corridor and concept designs of bridges, abutments, inward and outward retaining walls, walkways, underpasses and integrated landscape treatments. The project now serves as a model for new infrastructure projects.
