Work is complete on the Campbell Street cycleway.
This cycleway offers riders a separated eastbound lane up Campbell Street in Surry Hills, Sydney. It provides a quieter alternative to Oxford Street and connects the Bourke Street cycleway at Taylor Square with Central.
Oxford Street is one of the most popular cycling routes in and out of the city centre, but it is often congested with buses and traffic.
Campbell Street now features a separated cycleway uphill and traffic calming features downhill that will mean riders can better share the road with traffic.
The street upgrade included better lighting, new garden beds as well as 26 extra street trees.
Sydneysiders are cycling in record numbers. Bike counts show that there are 31,600 City of Sydney residents currently on a bike every week.
