City centre improvements
In the city centre
We are committed to improving and maintaining our streets.
From 2012 to December 2013, we renewed the following footpaths in the city centre. Footpaths were upgraded with granite pavers to make them safer and more appealing.
There were 2,600 square metres of granite paving that replaced asphalt footpaths in Pitt Street between Martin Place and Circular Quay.
A map of the granite paving works completed on Pitt Street is available to download below.
In 2012 new Granite paving was installed between Hunter Street and Martin Place, and between Market Street and Park Street
There were 1,100 square metres of new granite paving installed near Circular Quay in January 2013.
New granite paving was installed between Park Street and Market Street: 930 square metres.
Between George Street and Loftus Street: 590 square metres.
Between King Street and Barrack Street: 300 square metres.
Between George Street and Sussex Street: 990 square metres.
Between Pitt Street and George Street: 200 square metres.
Improvements were made to kerb ramps and drainage pits to improve safety.
Foundations for new Smartpoles were also installed. Smartpoles combine street and parking signs, traffic signals, and lighting on one pole. They provide high-quality street lighting and reduce clutter.
Smartpoles also allow for hanging baskets or street banners, improving the streetscape.
The advanced types of traffic infrastructure will continue to be installed in 2014.
