Missenden Road upgrade

Missenden Road upgrade

Improving pedestrian safety  

We are improving Missenden Road between Parramatta Road and King Street, to make it safer for commuters and people accessing local health care and education facilities.

Our improvements will create more space for walking and safer connections to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, University of Sydney and King Street's retail and entertainment precinct.

Works completed to date 

  • Installed concrete base for concrete pavers between Carillon Avenue and Campbell Street.
  • New concrete footpath and garden beds between Lucas Street and Grose Street.
  • New footpath continuation at Professor Marie Bashir Centre driveway.

Upcoming works

  • Install concrete base and concrete pavers between Salisbury Road and Grose Street.
  • Footpath continuation at Grose Street, Campbell Street and Longdown Street.
  • Kerb and gutter for new alignment between Campbell Street and Longdown Street.

Please note: Changed traffic conditions will apply and bus stops will be moved temporarily during the works. 

Street parking may be affected. The City needs to reduce the number of car spaces available to assist construction works. Alternative street parking is available on:

  • Carillon Avenue
  • Church Street.
