City transformation – from City of Sydney.

Keeping Sydney moving: Planning ahead is key

In the next 10 years, an extra 1 million people will call Sydney home. To cope with this extraordinary growth, Sydney’s transport network is undergoing major changes. A series of transport infrastructure projects are underway across greater Sydney with a key focus on the city centre.

The Transport for NSW and Roads and Maritime Services projects include:

  • light rail from Circular Quay to Kingsford and Randwick
  • a new bus network with priority city centre routes
  • major upgrades to key city centre train stations
  • the Wynyard Walk pedestrian link to Barangaroo
  • a CBD capacity improvement plan
  • the Barangaroo Ferry Hub
  • the construction of Sydney Metro and a new harbour tunnel
  • the first separated cycleway with a continuous connection from the north to the south of the city centre.

These developments will have an impact on everyone who lives, works and travels in the city centre, however by planning ahead you can play a role in keeping Sydney moving.

Important dates

Preparing for this change is about staying informed. Keep in mind the following important key dates that may impact you in the months ahead:

September–October: Bus improvements – new stops, road markings and kerbside changes across the city centre.
