George Street transforms

The NSW Government is working on a new 12km light rail line, connecting Circular Quay to Randwick, Kensington and Kingsford. Transport for NSW is offering free, bespoke travel advice to local businesses to help manage construction impacts in the city centre.

George Street is undergoing one of the biggest transformations ever seen in Sydney as part of the new light rail line. The City of Sydney has committed $220 million to ensure a high quality public domain outcome and is working closely with the NSW Government to create inviting public spaces where people want to live, shop, visit and do business.

George Street will have more space for people walking between Hunter and Bathurst streets. Greater space will mean cafes and restaurants can introduce outdoor dining areas.

The City's public domain activation strategy for George Street sets our vision for a tree-lined street with areas for public seating, new lighting and public art. 

Existing driveway access for buildings will be maintained and roads travelling east and west will remain open to vehicles. Delivery vehicles and taxis servicing the Hilton will travel along George Street as normal.

The revamped George Street will become an easy way to travel between key attractions from The Rocks and Circular Quay to the city centre's retail heart and down to Chinatown.

Light rail will also link passengers to the International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour.
