Liverpool Street – walking and cycling improvements

Liverpool 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 walking and cycling improvements to Liverpool Street. The project includes more footpath space for people walking, and cycle link between the Liverpool Street separated cycleway and Darling Harbour.

The cycling link is part of the NSW Government's strategic bike network. It will help improve safety and connections for the growing number of people riding in the city. The Liverpool Street cycleway already sees around 1,200 weekday trips.

The improvements include:

  • a wider footpath and 2-way cycleway on the south side of Liverpool Street from Sussex to Dixon streets to connect riders to the bridge over Harbour Street
  • an extension of the existing Liverpool Street cycleway to Sussex Street
  • a new diagonal bike crossing across Sussex Street.

The proposal removes 2 on-street car parking spaces on the southern side of Liverpool Street near Sussex Street to provide more space for people walking in this busy area.

It will also remove 4 part-time ticketed on-street parking spaces on the northern side of Liverpool Street to maintain space for 2 lanes of traffic.

These changes have in-principle support from Transport for NSW.

This project is proudly funded by the NSW Government.Image: Artist's impression of the completed works at the intersection of Liverpool and Sussex streets.
