Central and Wilmot Streets
Temporary alternative routes for Wilmot Street
As part of the first stage of works we need to temporarily close to vehicles a section of Wilmot Street from George Street to the HSBC loading dock.
You can access the HSBC car park via 2 alternative routes:
- Northern approach: From the Western Distributor via Harbour Street, left into Goulburn Street and left into Pitt Street.
- Southern approach: Along George Street via Pitt Street and left hand turn into Wilmot Street.

Improving city centre streets
As part of our work to revitalise laneways, the City of Sydney is improving Central Street and Wilmot Street.
These works will improve the laneways’ character, create opportunities for outdoor use, and make them safer and more interesting for pedestrians.
Works to both streets include:
- installing high-quality paving
- installing energy-efficient LED lighting
- raising the road to the footpath level along the entire laneway.
Changes to traffic are planned for both streets.
- Opening the street to 2-way traffic.
- Closing Wilmot Street between George Street and the HSBC car park, with removable bollards at the George Street intersection for emergency access.
- Raising the road surface to be level with the footpath.
- Converting the street into a shared zone.
- Changing the traffic flow to 1-way eastbound, with entry from George Street
- Raising the road surface level to be flush with the footpath levels
- Removing the 2 police-only parking spots next to Central Court House
- Making the 2 loading zone spaces for delivery vehicles only (no parking outside of loading zone times)
- Converting the street into a shared zone
- Converting the existing signalised intersection at George and Central streets into a mid-block crossing south of Central Street.
There will be vehicle access to buildings at all times, and the current loading zones will remain.
Work is expected to be completed in late 2014.
