  • Cycling strategy survey

    2 months ago
    The cycle strategy and action plan 2007–2017 has underpinned the City's cycling program for the past 10 years.

    We are updating the strategy to continue our work to achieve Sustainable Sydney 2030 direction 4 – to make Sydney a city for walking and cycling.

    Facilitating and encouraging walking and cycling for short trips helps keep the city moving for businesses, workers, tourists and residents, improves public health and reduces pollution.

    We asked for your feedback about your vision for the future of cycling in Sydney whether you are a new rider, regular rider or never get on a bicycle. The... Continue reading

    The report for the committee will be available on the City's website after 5pm on Friday 8 December 2017.

    Proposed parking changes

    The City of Sydney has identified new parking spaces, improved drop-off zones at key locations, and introduced new parking restrictions making it easier for residents to park in the area.

    This follows a review of local parking in response to community feedback on our plans for walking and cycling on Wilson and Burren streets.

    The proposed changes would result in 29 new parking spaces and 17 additional residential spaces – 46 in total – offsetting the future removal of 37 spaces to improve walking and cycling in the local area.

    New parking spaces – Randle, Holdsworth and Forbes streets

    A total of 33 additional parking spaces will be created by converting parallel parking to angled parking in Randle, Holdsworth and Forbes streets.

    In addition, one new space will be gained on Wilson Street. Existing parking restrictions in these areas will remain.

    More resident parking spaces – Copeland Avenue

    A total of 17 additional resident parking spaces will be created with new time restrictions on the southern side of Copeland Avenue. A new ‘2P 8am to 10pm Permit Holders Excepted Area 22’ parking restriction will apply. This will limit vehicles without an Area 22 parking permit to two hours of parking from 8am to 6pm seven days a week where the signs are installed.


    Drop off zones – Wilson Street

    In response to community requests for a drop-off zone near Redfern Station, two new ‘No Parking 8am to 10pm’ spaces are proposed on the southern side of Wilson Street at the Ivy Street intersection.

    In response to requests for extended drop-off zones at Carriageworks, the three spaces on southern side of Wilson Street at Carriageworks will become ‘No Parking 8am to 11pm’ spaces.

    New pedestrian crossing – Wilson and Queen streets

    A new pedestrian crossing is proposed on Wilson Street near the intersection of Queen Street and Carriageworks Way (subject to approvals). To ensure the crossing is safe, two parking spaces, one on each side of Wilson Street, will be converted to ‘No Stopping’.

    Reviewing this proposal

    City staff will review any feedback on this proposal and prepare a report for consideration by the Local Pedestrian, Cycling and Traffic Calming Committee at its meeting on Wednesday 13 December 2017.

    Parking changes endorsed by the committee will be installed before works start on improving Wilson and Burren streets for people walking and cycling.

  • Bondi to City Walking and Cycling Improvements

    8 months ago
    Bondi to cbd

    The exhibition period for this project is now complete. Thanks for having your say.

    We are designing a new cycleway along Moore Park Road in Paddington. The two-way separated cycleway will enhance safety along an important regional cycle link between Bondi Junction and the city centre.


    It will link the existing cycleway along the northern edge of Centennial Park (Oxford Street) and Bourke Street cycleway in Surry Hills.

    Streetscape improvements include:

    • safe crossing points for people walking and riding bikes at intersections
    • a bus stop upgrade between Cook and Lang roads
    • removal of the slip lane on Lang Road and an extra left turn lane
    • a safer path around the Korean War Memorial
    • more footpath space for people walking along Moore Park Road during events
    • more shrubs and grass
    • better street lighting for safety at night.

    The project will not affect the function of the road for people driving or affect access for residents and businesses. There will be no loss of parking spaces.

    We will maintain all significant trees, relocate trees where necessary and offset any losses by planting new trees.

    Please review the concept design and have your say by 12 May 2017.

    The proposed design will see a new footpath built up to 1.4m into land owned by Centennial Parklands Trust, which is supported by the trust and consistent with its masterplan currently on exhibition.

    Please note that the existing conditions are marked in red on the concept design.
