Our vast experience across the transport planning industry delivers strong outcomes and shapes better places for people.
Waterloo Road Active Streets Master Plan
JMT Consulting worked with the City of Ryde Council to provide transport advice to inform the development of an active street master plan for the Waterloo Road corridor. The aspiration of the Active Street Master Plan is to facilitate the creation of a ‘vibrant street’ by providing for an environment that encourages active transport as a safe, convenient and attractive alternative to private vehicle, while also supporting access to bus stops and the two metro stations. JMT worked closely with Hassell to develop a suite of recommendations to improve access both along and across Waterloo Road, with a focus on enhancing crossing opportunities and providing for a more coherent and legible corridor.
The new Powerhouse Museum at Parramatta will be a distinctive architectural statement and is intended to become a global landmark. JMT Consulting is assisting Infrastructure NSW with the design of the building, including the preparation of a transport assessment to support the development application. This considered access for different user groups including staff, visitors, school groups and domestic/international tourists. JMT Consulting also assisted Create NSW and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences in the development of the project brief. The study focused on defining the key transport requirements and considerations as part of the winning competition design for the new facility.
Sydney Harbour Bridge Cycleway Northern Access Project
Working alongside Transport for NSW, Josh was part of the design team that were ultimately successful in the design competition for a bike ramp at the northern end of the Sydney Harbour Bridge Cycleway. Josh’s advice informed the preferred cycleway design by ensuring the design accommodated for a range of user types and abilities as well as minimising conflict points between cyclists and pedestrians.
Walsh Bay Arts Precinct
JMT Consulting provided assistance to Create NSW, Sydney Theatre Company and Infrastructure NSW on the Walsh Bay Arts precinct through the preparation of an operational transport management plan. This included consideration of coach parking, loading dock management plan, green travel plan and a point to point transport management plan. The plans were developed in consultation with, and ultimately endorsed, by Transport for NSW and City of Sydney Council.
Cook Cove Masterplan
The Cook Cove northern precinct proposes a revitalisation of the Kogarah Golf Club site to include residential dwellings and a number of associated uses such as retail, commercial, education and sports/recreation. JMT Consulting is currently providing a full suite of transport planning services to inform the master plan and planning proposal – including the development of an internal street network, parking advice and transport modelling services.
World Square, Sydney
JMT Consulting worked with ISPT and Arcadia with the World Square public car park. JMT Consulting has led discussions with City of Sydney Council in relation to modifying the approved operating hours and pricing structure of the car park to support current operational needs. The assessment undertaken has included consideration of historical car parking demands and investigations into potential alternative uses for car parking which provides an overall transport benefit to the city.
Sydney Football Stadium Redevelopment
JMT Consulting is working with Infrastructure NSW and Venues NSW to deliver a new 45,000 seated stadium at Moore Park. JMT Consulting is leading the transport strategy for the proposal. Their work includes the development of a suite of measures to improve accessibility to the redeveloped stadium as well as operational transport measures to support major events held at the SFS.
Atlassian Central Station
JMT Consulting is currently working with Atlassian and a number of other stakeholders to develop a new commercial building which will be an anchor tenant of the new technology and innovation precinct at Central Station. JMT is providing transport engineering advice around a number of different access opportunities and ensuring the development integrates with the wider development occurring in the precinct.
Josh Milston has been involved in the Barangaroo Precinct for over a decade, following the selection of Lendlease as the preferred developer for Barangaroo South by the Barangaroo Delivery Authority in December 2009. JMT Consulting is currently working with Lendlease and Crown to provide traffic and transport assistance with the development of the Barangaroo South precinct, including vehicle circulation arrangements.
Macquarie Shopping Centre
JMT Consulting is currently assisting AMP Capital with the development of the Macquarie Shopping Centre, a project Josh Milston has been involved with since 2015. He developed a transport strategy that aimed to improve the pedestrian environment in the vicinity of the centre, particularly the Herring Road frontage. Josh was instrumental in helping AMP achieve approval for their Stage 2 Development Application by the Sydney North Planning Panel in November 2021.
Former Manly Hospital Site Master Plan
JMT Consulting is currently working with Property NSW on the development of a Planning Proposal for the former Manly Hospital site. The study is considering the traffic and transport implications of a number of uses for the site, particularly recommendations around parking and site access points. JMT is working closely with the appointed urban designer to facilitate a more legible internal road network that provides for improved connections to existing pedestrian pathways as well as bus stops on Darley Road.
Balmain Leagues Club
Josh Milston has been involved in the Balmain Leagues Club site since 2007, reviewing all development proposals that have been put forward for the site. In 2020 JMT Consulting was engaged by Heworth Holdings Group to undertake a peer review of the transport assessment undertaken for the site. A key component of this engagement included facilitating discussions with Inner West Council and Transport for NSW (TfNSW) in relation to the proposed site access arrangements and parking provision. Josh also made representations to the Sydney Eastern Planning Panel on behalf of the client.
South West Sydney Communities and Justice Precinct
The Department of Communities and Justice is exploring options with the Australian Government and Campbelltown City Council for the development of a South West Sydney Community & Justice Precinct in Campbelltown. JMT Consulting was engaged to provide traffic and transport advice to support the development of the masterplan for the precinct. A key item considered as part of the assessment included access requirements for various users including vehicles containing persons in custody.
Brookvale Master Plan Update
Northern Beaches Council has engaged JMT Consulting along with a number of other consultants to prepare an update to the Brookvale Master Plan. JMT Consulting is providing transport advice to inform the master plan update with the intention of unlocking greater development potential in the centre by encouraging a shift towards sustainable transport modes. A key component of the work is investigating opportunities to provide a more permeable centre for pedestrians and improve connections to the existing B-Line bus stops on Pittwater Road.
University of New South Wales Health Translation Hub
JMT Consulting prepared a transport impact assessment to support the development of the UNSW Health Translation Hub (HTH) building. The HTH building sits within the broader Randwick Health and Innovation Precinct and as such a key aspect of the work undertaken by JMT was to consider the interdependencies between the various uses within the vicinity of the site. JMT worked closely with the appointed architects to develop an access strategy that prioritised the movement of pedestrians whilst also facilitating efficient access to the buildings for drop off and servicing.
