What we’re doing

We’re extending the pedestrian boulevard on George Street from Hunter Street to Essex Street. These works will make George Street greener, help increase passing trade for local businesses and make it easier for people to walk around.

Our contractor, Sydney Civil will:

  • extending the footpaths alongside the light rail between Hunter and Essex streets, entirely removing the vehicular lanes
  • upgrading the footpath at the intersection of York, Jamison and Lang streets
  • creating new public plazas at the road closure of Margaret, Bond, Jamison and Dally streets
  • paving to Wynyard Street (east of Carrington Street) and Wynyard Lane to match the existing improvements at the entrance to Wynyard train station in Wynyard Lane
  • new granite paving to widen and make footpaths more accessible and allow for more alfresco dining areas
  • more trees, new garden beds, bubblers, bike racks and seating
  • new smartpoles with LED streetlights which will provide opportunities for hanging baskets and banners
  • improving stormwater drainage and relocating service utilities.

Emergency services and local access will be maintained during the works.
