Shape the future of Macquarie Park Innovation District
Let's go!
Keep calm and help us prepare…

On any given day Macquarie Park Innovation District (“Mac Park”) is home to over 40,000 students, 60,000 workers, 7,000 visitors and 13,000 residents. Traffic is a major concern for organisations in the park and will be further tested by the temporary railway closer in 2018/2019. 

The MPID Transport Hackathon is using the impending railway upgrade (which will close the Epping-Chatswood line for 7 months!) to look more broadly at mobility and connectivity solutions for Macquarie Park. How can we transform the precinct into a world-leading hub to learn, work and play?
