Default The future of spotting from Swamp Road near Ikea?

I tried to visit Swamp Road today for some spotting, as we have a week or more of clear-as-a-bell weather in Sydney.

Alas, Swamp Road is no more, due to Sydney Gateway construction works.

It was a top spot for landings and departures on 16R/34L, as was the overgrown gully adjacent to it. (The gully was between Swamp Road and Alexandra Canal.)

Are there any similar vantage points?

Swamp Road was a bit of an unknown gem. Not everyone knew about, it, but it offered a clear line-of-sight straight along that main north/south runway.
