I think bacco is saying that they’re trying to turn the Olympic Park area into more than just a sporting precinct by putting in apartments and businesses. However, as he’s rightfully said, it’s not going to be easy.
As someone who regularly goes to Olympic Park, there are some major issues, and not just Opal Tower. One is public transport. There are rarely any direct trains to Olympic Park - you have to change at Lidcombe to get there, or get off at Concord West and walk. Buses aren’t exactly convenient either, as I found out on Saturday. What is needed is a dedicated train line and buses going to and from Olympic Park everyday, not just for major events, and it needs to stop at major areas.
