Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program

The Parramatta Road Urban Amenity Improvement Program (PRUAIP) is an 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.


$198 million funding has been allocated to councils across 6 local government areas along the Parramatta Road corridor. This funding is supporting 32 projects that will revitalise the precincts between Camperdown and Granville.

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.
