About 2,000 bike riders use the Kent Street cycleway each week day. The City is now working on the southern section to extend the existing two-way separated cycleway from Druitt Street to Liverpool Streets.
The section between Druitt and Bathurst Streets was opened by the Lord Mayor Clover Moore with St Andrew’s Cathedral College Head of School John Collier on June 10.
The extension to Liverpool Street is scheduled for completion in November. The City will also make improvements at the northern end which links to the Harbour Bridge.
Southern section: Liverpool Street to Druitt Street
The southern extension of the Kent Street cycleway will connect Chinatown, Darling Harbour and Ultimo.
- Two-way separated cycleway along Kent Street between Liverpool Street and Druitt Street
- Improved lighting
- New paving and kerb alignments, and
- New street trees
Northern section: Gas Lane to Harbour Bridge through Argyle Street
Improvements between Gas Lane and the Harbour Bridge will provide a safe alternative route from the Harbour Bridge to the Kent Street cycleway. Bike riders and motorists will share the road in this low traffic residential area.
- Additional lighting to improve pedestrian safety between Gas Lane and Argyle Street
- Improvements to the Harbour Bridge on-ramp for pedestrians and bike riders
- Traffic calming measures including improved pedestrian crossings
- New rain gardens
The City and its contractors will make every effort to minimise disruption during construction. However, machinery noise and temporary restrictions on traffic, parking and pedestrian access will occur.
This work is being undertaken by Sydney Civil Pty Ltd. If you have any questions about this project, contact Jennifer Ross , Construction Liaison Officer, on 0402 996 750 during business hours, or email email@example.com.
