Chalmers Street – walking and cycling improvements

Chalmers Street – walking and cycling improvements

Under review

Contributions to this consultation are closed for evaluation and review. The project team will report back on key outcomes.

We invite your feedback on our plans to provide more space for people walking and riding on Chalmers Street near Central station. 

We’re proposing a 2-way separated cycleway connection on Chalmers Street between Prince Alfred Park and the cul-de-sac at Randle Street. The critical bike link will connect people riding to the existing separated cycleway on Chalmers Street, which was built as part of the light rail project.

The improvements will separate people riding and walking between Prince Alfred Park and the entrance to Central station and provide protected space for current and new riders to travel safely.

There are around 1,400 bike trips each weekday between Prince Alfred Park, Surry Hills and the city centre. The cycleway connection is part of a key route between the growing Green Square area, inner Sydney and North Sydney.

Once light rail construction is complete, activity in the area will increase significantly. These proposed improvements will create a safer environment for the high volumes of people walking and riding.

There are no proposed changes to trees, parking, loading areas or traffic.

This project is proudly funded by the NSW Government.
