Bike riders, pedestrians and light rail advocates rejoice- Sydney will soon become a paradise for your traveling needs. This week, the NSW Government released the Sydney City Centre Access Strategy, which will map out how people will travel around the CBD in the next twenty years.
Key features of this plan will include light rail in the CBD, more connected cycleways and improved access for pedestrians.
But while the reception has been mostly positive, critics question the need to remove popular cycleways, such as the College Street cycleway, as well as the plan’s incompatibility with the WestConnex project which will be bringing more cars into the CBD at a time where fewer cars are needed.
