The Meadowbank Bridge – also known locally as the ‘John Whitton Bridge’ – is a former rail bridge that is now a shared pathway. The bridge is a key component of the Greater Sydney active transport network.
Vesting of Crown land means to transfer the Title of Crown land to a new owner such as another Government Agency. This vesting will transfer ownership of the Meadowbank Bridge to Transport for NSW. It has been agreed that it is best for Transport for NSW to own and manage the Meadowbank Bridge as a part of their transport network.
Community Engagement Strategy
Engagement on this vesting is a requirement of the Community Engagement Strategy. The Strategy has been developed by the Department of Planning and Environment to set an open and transparent framework for engaging the community about important decisions on Crown land. The Strategy acknowledges that needs vary between communities, and that a range of engagement approaches may be required to ensure community views are understood before important decisions are made.
