Improving Macleay Street, Potts Point

Improving Macleay Street, Potts Point

Improvement works

We’ll soon start work on Macleay Street, Potts Point, between Orwell Street and Challis Avenue. This follows consultation with local residents and businesses to develop the design.

Works will make the area safer for people walking, help calm traffic, and improve the streetscape with more trees and plants.

Work includes installing:

  • wider footpaths to provide more space for people walking
  • raised continuous footpath treatments from Orwell Street to Rockwall Crescent
  • a raised intersection at Macleay Street and Greenknowe Avenue
  • new lighting, seating and street furniture
  • more street trees and new garden beds
  • 2 in-lane bus stops on the eastern and western side of Macleay Street.

You can view the final design for the project.

The City’s contractor, Sydney Civil Pty. Ltd. will carry out the work, which is planned to start in August 2020 and should take about 18 months, weather permitting.

A service location and investigation program will start in mid-July to identify any buried services in key areas. This will take up to 2 weeks.

Sydney Civil will also notify residents and businesses of construction times and dates before works are due to start outside their properties.
