The Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program (PRUAIP) is a $198 million initiative by the NSW Government to improve open space and active transport links along the Parramatta Road corridor. The program brings state agencies and local councils together to collaborate on projects that will improve public amenity in the corridor.
Six local councils have been provided funding under the program to deliver the 32 projects in and around Parramatta Road. This is part of the government’s commitment to revitalise precincts between Camperdown and Granville.
For more detail on each project, visit the relevant council’s website:
The works fall into three categories:
- Streetscape upgrades including tree planting, multi-purpose lighting, new pavements, pedestrian and cycle pathways and safer crossings.
- Creation of new and improved open spaces including a new urban plaza, which are important to support communities in a high density environment.
- New walking and cycle ways which link to key transport locations and open spaces.

PRUAIP public art framework
Public art plays an important role in creating a sense of place when it responds to the surrounding environment in both a physical and thematic sense.
A public art framework (PDF, 5.5 MB) has been developed as a guide for councils in the Parramatta Road corridor. Use of the framework will ensure an integrated and collaborative approach is taken when creating and commissioning public artworks for installation along the corridor.
The framework provides councils with a curatorial approach for the corridor as a whole. It is aligned to the objectives of the PRUAIP and local communities will benefit culturally, socially and economically from great public art in the corridor.
