Transport for New South Wales Urban Design Guidelines by Transport for New South Wales Precincts and Urban Design Team.

Jury citation:

The jury recognizes the potential for the Transport for New South Wales Urban Design Guidelines to embed strong urban design principles and sustainability initiatives throughout the delivery of road and rail projects.

The jury commends Transport for New South Wales for taking leadership and employing a peer review process for each of the guidelines developed. The jury acknowledges the consultation undertaken within the transport sector, including review by urban design, heritage and public art experts.

The guidelines aim to promote a sense of consistency across transport projects by describing urban design objectives for heavy and light rail and commuter carparks, as well as identifying actions that can be taken to meet them. This helps to ensure that communities across the state can experience a similar level of service and connectivity when taking public transport.

The guidelines also emphasize the importance of this network – not only in moving people, but also in creating quality, designed spaces that invite connection. This document identifies, embeds and monitors the inclusion of urban design principles in public transport infrastructure, from concept through to delivery.
