City transformation

We’re working with the NSW Government to make the city a better place for residents, workers and visitors.

Every day 1.3 million people are in the City of Sydney local area. From residents, workers and visitors to people studying, doing business, and shopping and dining – we’re making the city a more attractive, vibrant and connected place to live, work and visit.

Transforming George Street

Our vision of a fully pedestrianised George Street, linked by 3 squares at Circular Quay, Town Hall and Central, will reclaim more than 20,000m² of former roadway for people.

This vision is based on community consultation which highligted a desire for a well-designed and attractive street lined with trees, street furniture and public art.

George Street has undergone one of the biggest transformations in Sydney as part of the light rail line. The 12km line connects Circular Quay to Randwick and Kingsford, through Haymarket, Surry Hills, Moore Park and Kensington.

We’ve already converted George Street between Wynyard and Central into a beautiful tree-lined boulevard for people.

We continue to work closely with the NSW Government to extend the pedestrian boulevard towards Circular Quay, creating more inviting public spaces where people live, shop, visit, work and do business.
