What we’re doing

We’re updating our access strategy for the first time since 2012. It builds on the achievements of the past decade and creates the framework for the project ideas in Sustainable Sydney 2030–2050 Continuing the Vision.

Why we’re doing this

Our updated access strategy outlines our extensive projects that contribute directly to the community strategic plan. The projects will deliver what our communities told us – they want a city for walking and cycling with better public transport and fewer cars.

The main priorities for the City of Sydney to work on with the NSW Government include:

  • transforming Broadway into a green gateway, complete with a cycleway and light rail
  • a light rail connection between Green Square and the city, with electric buses servicing the area now
  • accelerating the Metro West extension to give Green Square residents a station at Zetland by 2030
  • calming traffic on Park Street in the city and widening footpaths to make space for trees and people
  • greening Oxford and Flinders streets with more space for people, entertainment, dining and light rail
  • continuing to build more bike and pedestrian friendly infrastructure
  • widening footpaths in areas where many people are walking – including the city centre, village centres and high streets
  • continuing to lower speed limits on our streets, with 30km/h maximum in the city centre and high activity areas.

Next steps

Your feedback will help us further develop the strategy for Council to consider later this year.
