BOURKE STREET CYCLEWAY
The 2.9km Bourke Street Cycleway project is one of the first large scale separated urban cycleways in Sydney. The cycleway runs between Woolloomooloo in the north and Waterloo to the south. The success of the project is established by the strong multi-disciplinary approach between traffic, civil engineering and landscape architecture.
The cycleway is integrated into the street environment and responds to different urban conditions along the route. In conjunction with the cycleway, the street is now a ‘greener’ environment with street tree planting, street verge planting, stormwater quality
improvements through the introduction of raingardens. The cycleway together with traffic calming and greening of the street have enhanced Bourke Street as one of Sydney’s most important civic boulevards.
