The NSW Government is currently exhibiting two proposals to improve congestion in the city centre, and now you can have a say on the design of these projects.
Late last year the Government endorsed the Sydney City Centre Access Strategy which includes major changes to buses and cycleways in Castlereagh, Liverpool and Parks Streets. This is important work to free up congestion in the city centre and provide light rail in George Street so people and businesses get around safely and quickly.
The Castlereagh Street cycleway is a separated cycleway between King Street and Hay Street. The Review of Environmental Factors (REF) is on exhibition until 1 August and consultation on cycleways in Liverpool Street and Park Street will begin soon.
I encourage you to show your support for safe bicycle links. You can see the plans and make a submission by clicking here - www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roadprojects/projects/sydney_region/cbd-access/cycleways/index.html
Improving congestion in the city centre means removing the hundreds of buses that clog city streets every day. The REF for changes to bus infrastructure aim to create bus corridors to reduce the impacts of congestion on journey times.
The changes include new bus lanes and stops, bus zones and shelters and creating bus layover facilities for buses to sit until they're ready to start a journey. I encourage you to provide your feedback by 25 July 2014 by clicking here - www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roadprojects/projects/sydney_region/cbd-access/bus-infrastructure/index.html
