Why we’re doing this

We will soon start work on the cycleway on Oxford Street and propose access changes at Liverpool Street and Palmer Street, Darlinghurst.

What we’re doing

Work will begin later this year on the Oxford Street cycleway. 

The proposed road closure and access changes will create a safe cycleway on one of Sydney’s busiest cycling routes, and provide more space and priority for people walking.

This proposal will:

  • permanently close Liverpool Street at Oxford Street
  • restrict left turn access from Oxford Street onto Palmer Street.
