Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program (PRUAIP)

To improve Auburn’s liveability, the NSW Government has awarded Cumberland Council $27million to improve public spaces and begin the rejuvenation to enhance it as a place to live, shop and do business. This grant is part of a wider program to revitalise public spaces along the Parramatta Road corridor (PRUAIP). The following four (4) amenity improvement projects within the Cumberland City Council Local Government Area were identified:

  1. Open Space: Extension of Auburn Park
  2. New Public Open Space: Stubbs Street Streetscape
  3. Parramatta Road Public Domain Improvements
  4. Melton Street M4 pedestrian cycleway overpass upgrade

This is part of the State Government's 30-year strategic plan to transform the Parramatta Road corridor. The Parramatta Road Urban Transformation Strategy (PRUTS) will bring a coordinated approach to development inside the Parramatta Road corridor.

NSW Government is proudly funding Cumberland City Council with grant funding to deliver the projects.
