Pop-up transport

Transport for NSW is fast-tracking pop-up transport changes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are working to ensure safe routes for walking, cycling, and exercise, access to essential services, and to go to work and school.

Transport has been working with local councils to help our communities to deliver a range of work, including cycleways and speed reductions.

These projects will support the community's needs; allowing for social distancing and to help provide for our safe movement as we get the economy and education going again.

Initially, we'll support busy areas by providing access to employment, shopping, businesses and recreation areas around Sydney.

In these changing times, we are working quickly to support communities in how they move.

Project information

  • Manly
  • Bridge Road and Pyrmont Bridge Road between Parramatta Road (Annandale) and the Western Distributor (Pyrmont)

Keeping you informed

If you would like more information, email us at

We’ll send residents community notifications as each project progresses. You can also follow us on Facebook.

We appreciate that change, no matter how small, can be stressful. Transport for NSW, in collaboration with local councils, like the City of Sydney, is working hard to notify all community members of these changes.

Great public spaces

The Department of Planning, Industry and the Environment want you to share your ideas for great streets as shared spaces
