Bennelong Parkway Bridge and Connecting Paths

Council is working to provide a missing key link to in completing the Homebush Bay Circuit by building a cyclist and pedestrian bridge on the northern side of Bennelong Parkway. The proposed bridge will provide a continuous, off road foreshore access between Wentworth Point, Rhodes and Sydney Olympic Park.

Project Description

When combined with the proposed Bennelong Parkway Bridge at Haslams Creek, pedestrians and cyclists will no longer be required to cross busy Bennelong Parkway twice, and will have new connections to the foreshore promenade and safe access across Hill Road at the new traffic lights.

The upgrade of Bennelong Parkway also keeps a cycling facility on each side of the street that will allow road cyclists to continue using Bennelong Parkway much like they do today.

Council is proposing the planting of new trees with appropriate consideration being given to space limitations and sightline, along with additional safety measures including:

  • Raised priority crossings
  • Upgrades to the roundabout at The Piazza to allow a more generous circulationspace and to ensure it meets modern standards.

The concept also allows for the existing bus stops to be retained and for a net increase in the number of on-street car parking spaces (though these spaces have been moved to the southern side of the road).
