The Goods Line
About the project
- Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority is leading this whole-of-government project which will open up a pedestrian and cycle network from Railway Square through Ultimo to Darling Harbour.
- The Goods Line will create a new urban hub and connect more than 80,000 tertiary students, locals and visitors to the many major attractions of Sydney’s much-loved Darling Harbour.
- The corridor will feature a series of elevated spaces or platforms which can be used for a variety of public entertainment, recreation, study and other activities.
- It will further connect arts, education and cultural institutions along Sydney’s Cultural Ribbon.
- The unique design, created by ASPECT Studios and Choi Ropiha Fighera, captures and interprets the original heritage corridor, state significant rail underbridge and signal box.
- It will be a great new public space for pop-up events, invigorating and bringing new activity into the precinct.
- The Goods Line North is the upcoming stage of a larger project. The next stage will be to redesign The Goods Line South, which runs from Ultimo Road underbridge through to Railway Square. In total, the northern and southern sections will be approximately 500 metres long.
- The Goods Line North is approximately 250 metres long and extends from Ultimo Rail underbridge to the Powerhouse Museum, running parallel to Harris Street.
- The construction contract for The Goods Line North has been awarded to Gartner Rose through a competitive tender process.
- Work on The Goods Line North began in March 2014 and is expected to be completed in mid 2015.
- Transport for NSW is conducting a feasibility study on a further extension of The Goods Line through to Mortuary Station and Redfern.

- Minor delays beyond our control have slowed progress on site.
- Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority's contractor, Gartner Rose, is working tirelessly to complete the project as soon as possible.
- High winds and wet weather have delayed the priority work to allow access to a stairway between Macarthur Street and Darling Drive; this is planned to open in May.
- Construction is expected to be completed in the near future, with public access anticipated by mid 2015.
