Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime in partnership with the CBD Coordination Office are improving road infrastructure in the city. This will make better use of available street space and accommodate the future growth of Australia's busiest Central Business District (CBD).

More than 630,000 trips are made to the city centre each weekday and this is expected to grow by about 150,000 trips a day by 2031.

The Sydney City Centre Access Strategy released in late 2013 provides for efficient access to the CBD by putting the right mode in the right place in the city centre, cutting congestion and supporting a globally competitive Sydney.

The Access Strategy identifies major bus and cycleway corridors to efficiently move residents and visitors around the city centre. View the Access Strategy on the Transport for NSW website.
