We are working in partnership with Transport for NSW (TfNSW) to develop detailed design services for improvements to pedestrian and cyclist infrastructure within Sydney’s Inner West Council LGA.
The legacy of this project will be an increase in active travel users, improvements to safety for all road users and enhanced liveability for local residents within the Inner West Council Local Government Area, through the provision of improved sustainable transport infrastructure.
This study focuses on a corridor running parallel with Victoria Road and connecting to Rozelle Interchange, which connects the M4 and M5 motorways as part of the Westconnex network. It also includes a new cycle route along the Iron Cove Bridge.
A key concern around the project for the community was a potential loss of on-street resident parking. So we sought to minimise impacts on parking or, if loss of parking proved unavoidable, developed a mitigation strategy to identify alternative parking provision.
We also adapted the project to tie in with other local initiatives such as a new cycling strategy and introduction of lower speed zones to provide consistency of implementation across multiple agencies.
Once complete, the project will provide increased journey mode choice, improved safety for active transport users, streetscape improvements to enhance amenity and better-connected neighbourhoods. Making real the goal of a better Inner West for cylists and pedestrians!
