Why we’re doing this

In November and December 2020, we consulted on a plan for a centre running pop-up cycleway on Oxford Street. The community let us know a safe connection for people riding is well supported and provided feedback about operation and access of the centre running cycleway.

Following community feedback, we have reconsidered the design and now propose a permanent, higher quality bi-directional cycleway on the northern side of Oxford and Liverpool streets.

What we’re doing

Oxford Street is one of the city’s busiest bike routes. 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.

The updated design will maintain loading and bus operations on Oxford Street. Transport for NSW will monitor the performance of the westbound kerbside lane and use of off-peak parking and loading spaces for 6 months after the cycleway opens, to identify and consider potential improvements. This will include evaluating bus reliability and potentially changing off-peak parking and loading hours, in consultation with the City of Sydney.

Parking and loading will be removed on Liverpool Street between Elizabeth and College streets and the bus stop on Liverpool Street will be relocated to Elizabeth Street.

This project is jointly funded by the City of Sydney and the NSW Government.

Cyclists ride through the square among people walking and a cyclist rides west on the cycleway.
Pedestrians wait at traffic lights outside Museum station while cyclists ride through the intersection.
A car is stopped at the lights on Palmer Street while a person crosses the street and a cyclist rides on Oxford Street. The bus stop west of the intersection is between the cycleway and roadway.
