Improved Shared Spaces
More Green Spaces
The North Shore is a dense area. With an increasing population, now more than ever the Council should be looking to increase the amount of green space in our community. We need to pursue projects such as; reclaiming land, constructing urban green spaces and expanding our existing green areas. There are many ways to ensure the people of North Sydney have plenty of space to meet, exercise, play sports or simply enjoy time outdoors.
Sydney Harbour Highline
The Sydney Harbour Highline is a proposal that would transform the Waverton to Luna Park train line into a community space. Considering the need for greater shared and green spaces in our area, reclaiming this seldom used train line stands as an excellent project.
The line starts next to Waverton Station. It cuts through the suburb just back from the foreshore, along Sawmillers Reserve before going underground beneath Blues Point. The tunnel comes out around Lavender Bay and Wendy Whiteley Secret Garden before ending at the back of Luna Park.
If we as a community could reclaim these areas we would open up our water front areas, link Milsons Point to Waverton and remove a train line that cuts through residential areas. I am in full support of this project. You can find out more about the proposal at: https://www.sydneyharbourhighline.org.au/
