What’s this about?

Transport for NSW is proposing to build a new battery electric bus depot at Macquarie Park, as part of the Zero Emission Buses Program. 

The Macquarie Park Bus Depot will accommodate around 165 electric buses and be built on Transport owned land at 1A and 1B Talavera Road, Macquarie Park.

Key features of the project include:

  • around 165 bus bays to accommodate a mixture of standard and extra-long (articulated) battery electric buses
  • battery charging infrastructure, bus maintenance bays and a wash bay 
  • an underground staff car park providing around 150 parking spaces. Access to and from the staff carpark would be via Talavera Road 
  • a multistorey staff and security building  
  • widening and upgrading Pittwater Road to enable bus access to and from the depot 
  • removal of an existing bike path linking the M2 Hills Motorway to Talavera Road
  • new lighting, fencing, security booths and fire safety equipment.

Key benefits of the Zero Emission Buses Program include improved liveability, through reduced noise and pollution caused by diesel and gas buses as well as a better travel experience for passengers.
