Footpath, lighting and traffic signal upgrades

Footpath, lighting and traffic signal upgrades

In the city centre

We are committed to improving and maintaining our streets. From the end of 2014 to December 2015, we renewed the following footpaths in the city centre. Footpaths were upgraded with granite paving to make them safer and more appealing.

York Street

1,800 square metres of granite paving replaced asphalt footpaths in York Street between Margaret Street and Wynyard Street, outside the Queen Victoria Building.

Kent Street

Between Market Street and King Street: 798 square metres.

Pitt Street

Between Goulburn Street and Bathurst Street: 965 square metres.

Gas Lane

Shared zone: 645 square metres.

Kings Cross Road

Between Darlinghurst Road and Ward Avenue: 550 square metres. 

Street lighting and other improvements

New Smartpoles were installed along sections of Pitt Street, Kent Street and Sussex Street.

Smartpoles combine street and parking signs, traffic signals and lighting on 1 pole. They provide high-quality LED street lighting and reduce clutter. Smartpoles allow for hanging baskets or street banners, also improving the streetscape.

Improvements were also made to kerb ramps and drainage pits to improve safety. These advanced types of traffic infrastructure will continue to be installed in 2015 and 2016.
