Improving Quay Street, Haymarket

We're planning an upgrade to improve connections for people walking.

Project Status: Under review

What we’re doing

The street upgrade and new public plaza will include trees, lighting and seating. We’ll also widen footpaths and install a new pedestrian crossing to improve safety for people walking. Quay Street is a popular walking connection between Central station and Darling Quarter.

For people riding bikes, we’ll create a new shared path on the western side of Quay Street between George Street and Ultimo Road. This will include new bike lanterns on Ultimo Road, George and Lee streets to connect riders to Central station.

The new public plaza and other improvements will require removal of some on-street parking. We propose removing 7 parking spaces on Quay Street and 1 space on Valentine Street. We’ll create 4 new parking spaces on the southern side of Valentine Street. When the project is complete there will be a total of 4 fewer parking spaces. If this proposal and design are approved by Roads and Maritime Services, work is expected to start in early 2021.
