New cycleway and walking improvements for King Street

This project is part of our program to make Sydney a safer place for people to walk and ride, and provide more options for people to travel around the city.

Project Status: In progress

What we’re doing

We’re building a 2-way cycleway on the northern side of King Street, between Pitt Street and Queens Square. We’re also making improvements to footpaths and changes to traffic flows to make King Street a safer, calmer place for people walking.

This will create a safe cycling connection between the Pitt Street cycleway and East Sydney, including planned cycleways on College, Castlereagh and Oxford streets.

We will also simplify traffic movements at King and Elizabeth streets. This includes making King Street one-way, east of Elizabeth Street and a short section of Phillip Street. This will create a safer environment for people crossing King Street at Elizabeth and Phillip streets.
