Bourke Street, Waterloo: shared path works

A new 7km north-south corridor from Mascot to Woolloomooloo will improve safety for people walking and riding.

Project Status: Completed

Bourke Street, Waterloo is already part of a popular travelling route from south of the city to Darlinghurst, the city centre and Woolloomooloo, being used by around 400 people who ride each day.

We improved a 1.5km section of the path between Phillip Street, Redfern and Botany Road, Green Square. The upgrade included:

  • wider paved footpaths
  • improved street lighting
  • new garden beds
  • new bus shelters
  • additional seating
  • extra bike racks
  • new shared path signs.

To improve pedestrian and bike rider safety, a shared path now connects the Bourke Street and Bourke Road cycleways providing a 7km north–south corridor from Mascot to Woolloomooloo. 

Work was completed in 2018.
