Visitors to the Barangaroo precinct can now arrive via a new pedestrian bridge across Sussex Street that NSW Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance today announced as open.
The new six-metre wide bridge allows for current and future pedestrian demand into the new Barangaroo precinct and is part of the NSW Government’s $306 million Wynyard Walk project.
Wynyard Walk will allow pedestrians to travel from Wynyard Station to the Barangaroo waterfront in approximately six minutes, avoiding steep inclines and increasingly busy CBD road crossings.
Together with a new western entrance to Wynyard Station on Clarence Street, an underground walkway and a new public plaza at the corner of Kent and Napoleon Streets, the new bridge will make walking between the Wynyard transport hub and Barangaroo a quick, convenient and accessible option.
The Barangaroo development is expected to accommodate up to 23,000 office workers and attract up to 33,000 visitors each day when complete.
