This land was the terminal of the second stage of the F3 Freeway, which was to run from the completed first stage at Fig Tree Bridge along the west side of the Lane Cove estuary and then parallel to Pittwater Road to Epping Road. Wran abandoned this stage to fund the F3 Freeway north of the Hawkesbury. Carr turned some other portions of the F3 alignment over to Lane Cove National Park, but this bit was not, because of its proximity to the Delhi Road rail station.
