Scot MacDonald
KANGY ANGY URBAN DESIGN PLAN RELEASED
27th Nov 2018

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Scot MacDonald MLC today released details of the urban design for the $300 million New Intercity Fleet maintenance facility at Kangy Angy.

“This urban design update shows the community the location of buildings, roads and parking areas within the maintenance facility, as well as the proposed designs for site buildings,” Mr MacDonald said.

“We are also asking local residents to provide feedback on the proposed colour schemes for the noise wall, the choice of vegetation to be planted and any ideas they have for public art.”

The urban design plans aim to integrate the maintenance facility into the existing landscape, using natural finishes like timber and rock, as well as native vegetation to blend with the local surroundings.

A noise wall will run from the western end of the maintenance building to the intersection of Ourimbah and Turpentine roads.

“Transport for NSW is committed to keeping the local community informed as the project progresses and we’ll be encouraging Kangy Angy residents whose properties are close to the facility to provide feedback on aspects of the plan.”

Details of the urban design can be viewed at www.transport.nsw.gov.au/projects/current-projects/new-intercity-fleet-program-maintenance-facility.

Feedback can be provided by emailing projects@transport.nsw.gov.au by 17 December 2018.

The maintenance facility at Kangy Angy will be the base for NSW’s new fleet of intercity trains which will service customers travelling between Sydney and the South Coast, Blue Mountains, Central Coast and Newcastle.

The maintenance facility will also provide around 300 local jobs during the construction and operation stages, including opportunities for apprenticeships and traineeships and 200 jobs while in operation.
