Sydney Harbour Bridge Cycleway Designs revealed

Sydneysiders can now get their first look at the future of the Sydney Harbour Bridge Cycleway with design options now open for community consultation.  

Transport for NSW is seeking community feedback on a shortlist of three initial concept designs for a bike ramp at the northern end of the Sydney Harbour Bridge Cycleway. Each of the three designs has been prepared by leading urban design and architectural firms through a competitive design process. The design firms are:

  • Aspect Studios, with Collins and Turner Architects, Yerrabingin, Eckersley O’Callaghan Engineers, JMT Consulting and Design 5 Architects
  • REALMstudios, with Djinjama, Aileen Sage, Lucas Stapleton Johnson, Dr. Mike Harris, PMI Engineers and Nick Schliepe
  • Civille, with Ney & Partners, H+N+S Landscape Architects, Djinjama and Sue Rosen Associates

Minister for Transport and Roads Rob Stokes said community feedback will be presented to an expert design panel, before a winner is announced next year.  

“The community has a once in a lifetime opportunity to help shape the future of this iconic landmark by having a say on three shortlisted designs,” Mr Stokes said.  

“The designs have been developed to enhance the heritage of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and to ensure a design that respects and embraces Aboriginal culture, as well as being functional for bike riders of all abilities.” 

Whilst we are seeking feedback on the three shortlisted designs, we would also like to hear what you think of our design concepts for a separated cycleway on Alfred Street which would take bike riders from the new ramp to the existing cycle network.

Feedback on the three ramp designs and Alfred Street cycle path will be open from Monday 6 December 2021 to midnight on Sunday 16 January 2022.
