As part of the Barangaroo development an upgrade of Hickson Road, between Watermans Quay and the Sussex Street Bridge, is currently being delivered. The second stage of this work will soon be completed and planning for the third stage of work has begun.
The third stage will commence on Saturday, 24 February 2018 and involves excavating the eastern half of Hickson Road. Traffic will be moved to the completed western side. Hickson Road will remain open to traffic throughout the work.
This third stage is expected to be completed by early June 2018. Further updates will be provided as the work progresses.
There will be some pedestrian access changes throughout this stage of work:
• Pedestrian access on the eastern side of Sussex Street, between Napoleon Street and the Sussex Hotel, will be temporarily removed. Access will be maintained to the Sussex Hotel and florist from the south.
• Pedestrian access on the eastern side of Hickson Road, north of Napoleon Street will be narrowed. Access to the pedestrian island on Hickson Road, adjacent to Watermans Quay, will be maintained.
Wayfinding signage will be in place to advise pedestrians of these changes.
