Petersham to Newtown cycle link

  • Project description
    Inner West Council is constructing a permanent cycle link between Petersham Station and King Street, Newtown. The project is funded as part of the NSW Government's cycleway program in response to COVID-19.

    This link starts at Petersham Station and will run along Crystal Street, York Crescent, Gordon Crescent, Douglas Street, Railway Avenue, Trade Street, Baltic Street, Albermarle Street and Eliza Street. In addition some bicycle logos will be painted on the road in Trafalgar Street as an interim measure while works are being carried out on Petersham Station.

    The work includes new line marking and signage on sections of existing cycleways. On Douglas Street and Railway Avenue a separated 2.4m cycleway will be installed. It includes two lanes, one going in each direction, and a physical barrier to parked cars for cyclist safety.

    Council engaged the community on plans for the cycle link and in 2017 adopted them for construction pending funding. Read more at the Your Say Inner West website

    The cycle link will provide an additional transport choice to access to employment, shopping, business and recreation areas to get the economy moving again.
