STATUS: Consultation complete and final design underway. Construction due to start in April 2019 for completion in February 2020. Lawson Street in Redfern is set to undergo a streetscape upgrade to improve passage for people walking and riding bikes, as well as amenity for local residents.
A new cycleway will be built on the northern side from Eveleigh Street to Regent Street to provide a connection for people to ride safely between Newtown and the City.
The upgrade will create more space for people walking, while balancing the needs of local residents, parking and the general appeal of the street.
The work will include crossing points for people walking and riding bikes at intersections.
