Your feedback on designs for the Surry Hills to Central quietway

We’ve developed a proposed design for a quietway through Cooper and Arthur streets in Surry Hills.

Project Status: Open for feedback

What we’re doing

Our proposed designs for the quietway will calm traffic and improve the environment for people walking and riding along sections of Cooper Street and Arthur Street in Surry Hills.

Why we’re doing this

The quietway is an important link in the bike network between Elizabeth Street and South Dowling Street, through Cooper Street Reserve and Crown Street. It will connect people riding to the Bourke Street cycleway and Moore Park.

This series of traffic calming and landscaping treatments along sections of Cooper and Arthur streets will make the area a better, safer place to walk and ride while reducing the amount and speed of traffic.
