Sydney streets technical specifications

Design and construction standards and details

When works are undertaken on local streets and footpaths, the Sydney Streets Technical Specifications provide developers, consultants, service providers and City of Sydney staff with the standards and details for design and construction.

The specifications complement the Sydney Streets Code 2013, which sets out our vision for public infrastructure, including its relationship with Sustainable Sydney 2030.

Technical and standard drawings information is included in the specifications, which were developed from numerous City documents, work practices, research and analysis of industry standards and best practice.

The revised Sydney Streets Technical Specifications (version 4) provide a consolidated, comprehensive and concise approach to the design and construction of all public infrastructure works within the City's streetscape.
