$1.7 billion infrastructure plan

We have set aside $1.7 billion for building and construction projects in the next 10 years from 2017, covering nearly 400 projects that will provide new and renovated facilities for communities and businesses across the City of Sydney local area.

The 10-year corporate plan is a huge investment that will enhance the city's liveability, boost the economy, encourage tourism, improve sustainability, create new public open spaces and enhance our cultural life.

Among the major city-wide projects to be delivered over the next 10 years are:

  • $330 million for public domain improvements, including footpaths, roadways and paving
  • $289 million to upgrade the City's parks and green spaces
  • $55 million on cycleways, providing cycling connections between important destinations
  • $21 million on public art, including a major new work to honour the Eora peoples
  • $8 million to increase Sydney's street tree canopy and reduce the damaging heat island effect.

The projects will help create more welcoming and connected neighbourhoods to meet the needs of our growing population of families and workers.

In the past 10 years, the City has completed hundreds of important projects including parks, playgrounds, child care, pools, libraries, theatres and community and cultural spaces.
