Sydneysiders can now get their first look at the future of the Sydney Harbour Bridge Cycleway with design options now open for community consultation.
The community can have its say on three northern bike ramp options developed by leading design firms, Aspect Studios, Civille and REALMstudios
Minister for Transport and Roads Rob Stokes said community feedback will be presented to an expert design panel, before a winner is announced next year.
“The community has a once in a lifetime opportunity to help shape the future of this iconic landmark by having a say on three shortlisted designs,” Mr Stokes said.
“The designs have been developed to enhance the heritage of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and to ensure a design that respects and embraces Aboriginal culture, as well as being functional for bike riders of all abilities.”
Member for North Shore Felicity Wilson said the linear bike ramp was identified as the preferred option following extensive community and stakeholder engagement.
“This unique area of our harbour foreshore has significant historical value and is a special place for local residents as well as people across NSW and the world,” Ms Wilson said.
“This process is about getting the design right for this important place with a piece of infrastructure that is worthy of sharing this iconic location with our Harbour Bridge.”
Community feedback on key elements of the three ramp designs and the Alfred Street south cycleway connection will close on Sunday 23 January 2022.
Following the selection of the winning design, the community will have further opportunities to provide feedback as planning progresses.
