Why we’re doing this

The City of Sydney is proposing to pilot new cycleways on Oxford, Liverpool and College streets to provide more transport options in the city.

What we’re doing

The cycleways include a 2-way cycleway in the centre of Oxford Street, west of Taylor Square, and Liverpool Street and a 2-way cycleway on the western side of College Street.

The innovative centre cycleway design will provide people cycling with a similar level of “green time” as if they were riding with traffic, but in a safer, separated road environment.  The design will also reduce conflict between bike riders and parked cars, buses and vehicles (especially those turning at intersections).  People can get to and from the cycleway at every signalised intersection along this part of Oxford Street.

On Oxford Street, 1 City-bound traffic lane will be removed to make space for the cycleways, leaving the current kerbside arrangements for buses, loading and parking as they are.

This requires a 6-month trial of kerbside arrangements on the southern side of Oxford Street to ensure buses can still operate effectively.  

The cycleway is built with lighter weight materials than our usual permanent cycleways. It provides the same level of protection but can be installed faster to minimise disruption.

The cycleways will be jointly funded by the City of Sydney and the NSW Government, and built by the City of Sydney.

Work is scheduled to start in March 2021 and be completed by June 2021. Some night work will be required.
