Pippita Rail Trail Development

Stay up to date on the latest news about the ‘Pippita Rail Trail’ Active Transport Link. 

December 2022 update:

Consultation has closed on the Pipita Rail Trail project, and submissions are now being reviewed. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback.


November 2022 consultation:

We want to know your ideas and feedback about our proposal for the Pippita Rail Trail project, an active transport link between Lidcombe to Sydney Olympic Park.

Council has received funding from the State Government under the NSW Get Active Program for the planning and design of the Pippita Rail Trail.  The trail will be created by transforming an unused three kilometre rail line, that was once used to service the state brickworks, abattoirs and Homebush saleyards, which included the Flemington Goods Junction, Pippita, Metropolitan Meat Platforms and sales yards and Brickworks railway stations.

The Pippita Rail Trail is part of Council’s long term strategic vision for Cumberland. The project will help residents access parks and open spaces along the corridor.  It will also provide an opportunity to cycle or walk directly from Lidcombe to Sydney Olympic Park and view interesting places and local history along the way. You can see the proposed trail on the map below, or download a copy from the document library.
