Crown Street Upgrade

Project Overview

Crown Street in Surry Hills, between Oxford and Devonshire streets.

The upgrade will improve walking in the area, and help increase passing trade for local businesses.

What work is being done?

  • removing timber electrical poles and undergrounding overhead electrical cables
  • new multifunction smartpoles with LED streetlights

  • installing new footpath where there is currently pop-up alfresco dining

  • footpath widening, kerb upgrades and pedestrian ramp upgrades

  • replacing the existing signalised crossing at Crown Street Public with a raised pedestrian zebra crossing

  • new garden beds along the street, new bubblers, bike racks and seating.

To cool and green Crown Street we are planning to increase canopy cover by over 50 percent. We will replace three existing trees with 40 new trees. Eight current on-street parking spaces will be converted into tree pits and a new footpath.

See below artistic impressions.

Commencement date:

  • Construction is scheduled to commence in early 2023

Work will be carried out during the day between 7:30am and 5:30pm Monday to Friday and 7:30am to 3:30pm on Saturdays.

We will work to minimise impacts during this time. However, there may be machinery noise, temporary restrictions to traffic parking and changes to pedestrian access.

If there is bad weather, our contractors will try to start the work the next day. If unsuitable weather continues, we will update you on any changes to the schedule.

You will still be able to access properties in the street. We will contact you if we need to temporarily restrict access during construction.

The safety of our communities, residents and staff is our top priority.

Thank you for your patience while we complete these important works.
