George Street, Sydney CBD


All Projects
Client: City of Sydney Council
Location: Sydney CBD

Date: Feb 2021 to  Feb 2023

Value: $32 million

City of Sydney Council contracted Sydney Civil to assist with transforming George Street in the Sydney CBD (between Bathurst Street and Rawson Place) into a more pedestrian-friendly area. Supported by all levels of government, this streetscape project will create approximately 9000 square metres of additional car-free space for the city centre.

What work is being done?

  • Extended pedestrianised zones at the southern end of George Street (between Bathurst Street and Rawson Place)
  • Improvements to open space on George Street (between Rawson Place and Pitt Street, Ultimo Road, Thomas Street and Hay Street)
  • More than 9000 square metres of new space for pedestrians to enjoy
  • Replacement of car lanes with granite footpaths
  • Addition of new street trees, seating and lighting
  • Space for outdoor dining
  • Simpler intersections to reduce travel time

To minimise impact on the local community, Sydney Civil divided construction into various stages that saw it progress south – block by block – with access maintained to the affected area wherever possible.
