Sydney Park Junction aims to improve connectivity on the Princes Highway King Street corridor around St Peters and Sydney Park. We want to create dynamic community spaces for the community to use in diverse ways in order to make St Peters a more enjoyable place to walk, bike and socialise, and to make it easier to access Sydney Park from the Princes Highway.
Transport invited community feedback on the Sydney Park Junction walking, cycling and public domain improvements from 5 September 20 to 4 October 2021. We received 548 submissions during this period. That's why Transport is proposing to redesign Sydney Park Road, incorporating the cycleway as part of Sydney Park Junction, in collaboration with the City of Sydney Council and Inner West Council.
