Mr Constance left open the question of where the route would go. The City of Sydney Council has already spent more than $40 million on acquiring land for a four-kilometre bus and light rail route from Green Square to Central.
But it is understood the minister and Transport for NSW might push for a different route to try and take advantage of "value capture" from new housing developments, one which could also link with new train stations under consideration.
Quote:
"Green Square West has a heavy rail station, but the concentration of development is in the north and east parts of Green Square, an area that is a 20 minute walk from the station. Residents rely on overcrowded buses which will not accommodate future demand."

It would be a bit disappointing to let the 4 KM light rail and bus route the council have been purchasing go to waste. From what articles and forecasts have been predicting, I'm a little sceptical the train station alone can move the volume of people it would need to through to the CBD during peak hour and I think it would be a nice option to have alternative above ground (bus/light rail).

However, it sounds like they're not interested in improving links to the new Green Square town centre and might instead focus on the outer precincts. I fear this is only going to increase the pressure on the train station rather than reduce it.

Well.. at least a nice connection between the Town Centre and East Village Shopping Plaza would be nice.

The top 20 fastest growing suburbs in NSW

BY LAILANI - POPULATION NEWS · JULY 23, 2015

In this blog we delve into .id’s Small Area Forecasts (SAFi), and share the top twenty population growth areas in New South Wales. We also offer some insights into the factors driving growth, and share our thoughts on how businesses and planning authorities can best use the detailed information contained in the SAFi population forecasts.

The top 20 fastest growing suburbs in NSW, 2011-2021
The following table presents the fastest growing areas in NSW, based on SAFi out to 2021. (We are using the term ‘areas’ here as a shorthand to refer to ABS Statistical Areas Level 2 (SA2s) which are a similar size to suburbs).

These areas are ranked by the quantum of population change, but you can see that the areas with the biggest increases in absolute population numbers also tend to have the greatest increases in percentage terms. That is, areas with the largest growth also tend to have the fastest growth rates.

Rank Area (SA2) Net Change 2011-21 % Change (av. ann.)
1 Riverstone – Marsden Park 29,387 12.1%
2 Cobbitty – Leppington 27,930 18.1%
3 Waterloo – Beaconsfield 18,817 6.2%
4 Homebush Bay – Silverwater 13,575 7.3%
5 Rouse Hill – Beaumont Hills 11,267 4.9%
6 Castlereagh – Cranebrook 11,012 4.9%
[section deleted]

You can see that population growth in NSW is really a two horse race, with Riverstone – Marsden Park SA2 in the Blacktown region just pipping Cobbitty – Leppington in Sydney’s South West. Waterloo – Beaconsfield in Sydney’s inner-city puts in a respectable third place, leaving nothing but daylight back to the rest of the pack.



Brizer Comment: Odd choice of 'Waterloo-Beaconsfield' rather than 'Waterloo-Zetland' or 'Alexandria-Waterloo-Zetland', but there it is, the general Green Square Urban Redevelopment Area is the 3rd fastest growing area in the state.

Does anyone know the details of the COS proposed 4km light rail route from Central to Green Square?
