Senior Project Manager, City Engagement
The City of Sydney together with the NSW Government, will close George Street between Hunter Street and Bridge Street from Monday 9 January 2023.
We will add colour and seating to the space to encourage people to use the area and support local businesses.
For better access for people walking, these traffic changes will take place:
Local access to properties will remain.
These maps show traffic and access arrangements around George Street, including access in and out of Dalley Street, Bond Street, Curtin Place, Jamison Street and Wynyard Lane.
The closure will be made permanent when the area is converted into a pedestrian boulevard later next year.
Our proposal to extend the pedestrianisation of George Street from Hunter Street to Essex Street was on public exhibition during October and November 2022. The proposal was endorsed by Council in December 2022. You can view the council report online (refer to item 8.6).
