    The aims of the project were to identify pedestrian and cycle facilities that are to be provided by Westconnex as part of the State Significant Infrastructure for M5 interchange works.

  • Project Description:
    A separated cycleway on Burrows Road near Sydenham Station as well as traffic calming on Henry Street Sydenham and improved crossings at Unwin’s Bridge linking with the existing L8 and L13 bike routes from the Marrickville Bicycle Strategy is being designed and to be constructed.
    The Sydenham connection; a South west connection at Princes Highway has limited connectivity to the surrounding network and is a current gap in the proposed network.

    Henry Street
    George Street
    Ends at Burrows Avenue, near Sydenham Station
