Improving Quay Street, Haymarket

Improving Quay Street, Haymarket

Under review

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

We’re planning to upgrade Quay Street in Haymarket to improve connections for people walking and riding bikes. This will include a road closure at Thomas Street to create a new public plaza. We’re seeking your feedback on the project.

The street upgrade and new public plaza will include trees, lighting and seating. We’ll also widen footpaths and install a new pedestrian crossing to improve safety for people walking. Quay Street is a popular walking connection between Central station and Darling Quarter.

For people riding bikes, we’ll create a new shared path on the western side of Quay Street between George Street and Ultimo Road. This will include new bike lanterns on Ultimo Road, George and Lee streets to connect riders to Central station.

The new public plaza and other improvements will require removal of some on-street parking. We propose removing 7 parking spaces on Quay Street and 1 space on Valentine Street. We’ll create 4 new parking spaces on the southern side of Valentine Street. When the project is complete there will be a total of 4 fewer parking spaces.

If this proposal and design are approved by Roads and Maritime Services, work is expected to start in early 2021.
