New pop-up cycleways to help us get back to work and school
18 May, 2020
Pop-up cycleways and new temporary safe speed limits are being introduced in key commuter areas across the city to give people more options to safely walk, cycle and commute to work.
Developed in collaboration with City of Sydney Council, six new pop-up cycleways will be rolled out to the west, east and south of the CBD.
The six new pop-up cycleways will be on:
- Bridge Road / Pyrmont Bridge Road at Pyrmont;
- Pitt St North in the CBD;
- Moore Park Road in Paddington / Moore Park;
- Dunning Avenue at Rosebery;
- Sydney Park Road in Alexandria / Erskineville; and
- Henderson Road at Eveleigh.
The NSW Government and City of Sydney Council are also considering plans to deliver temporary cycleways on Oxford St in Paddington/Darlinghurst, King St, College St and Castlereagh St in the CBD, and King St in Newtown.
In the villages of Camperdown, Ultimo and Bridge Road between Annandale and Pyrmont, new 40km/hr zones will be piloted in conjunction with the pop up cycleway measures to provide safe route options for commuters and pedestrians.
Cycling helps reduce vehicle traffic on our roads and frees up space on public transport, making it a practical option when people start returning to the City and need to maintain physical distancing.
The pop-up solutions will be closely monitored and work is underway to identify other hot spots across Sydney.
