Coulson Street pedestrian link
Linking with Sydney Park Road in Erskineville
A pedestrian link is planned between Coulson Street and Sydney Park Road in Erskineville.
This link is about making it easier for residents to access open space and parklands.
The proposed pedestrian link is an area bounded by high density apartment buildings.
We propose to use this narrow strip of City land to extend an existing footpath and connect Coulson Street to Sydney Park Road.
The pedestrian link will make it easier to access Sydney Park and St Peters station from Coulson Street.
A feasibility study has also been carried out regarding a potential crossing across Sydney Park Road, which would benefit residents from the nearby Ashmore precinct.
The developed design
Arising from development consent conditions, monetary contributions from the Sydney Park Village and Zenix Apartment developers have been dedicated to develop this site as a link.
Key components of the design are:
- a safe and accessible path and ramp including lighting to allow for night-time use
- stair access
- upgrade existing ramp to meet current accessibility guidelines
- create an open lawn area with new seating, grass and landscaping for people to enjoy
- plant screening along sections of the adjacent apartment buildings.
Temporary footpath closures
As part of our works to create the Coulson Street pedestrian link, the City’s contractor will need to temporarily close the Sydney Park Road footpath. Pedestrians can cross Sydney Park Road at Mitchell Street and the Princes Highway, or alternatively, use Coulson Street. Onsite traffic management staff will be positioned at both Mitchell Street and Princes Highway. For more information, call the City’s Customer Service Centre on 02 9265 9333.
Time and dates:
- Monday 24 February from 7.30am to 4pm
- Tuesday 25 February from 7.30am to 4pm
- Thursday 27 February from 7.30am to midnight
- Friday 28 February from midnight to midnight (24hours)

The concept design plan was on public exhibition in October 2011.
The developed design has been recently completed in consultation with key stakeholders and the community.
This plan is available to download below.
The City’s contractor started work in November. The works will be carried out between 7.30am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday and on Saturday, when required, from 7.30am to 3.30pm. The project is expected to be completed by April 2014, weather permitting.
