Render of Curlewis St Streetscape Upgrade

We're proposing to upgrade Curlewis Street in Bondi Beach to make it safer for pedestrians and bike riders. This project also involves beautifying the street to provide a welcoming and vibrant space for the whole community to enjoy.

This project is part funded by Transport for NSW.

Project description

Curlewis Street is an important community hub which marks the entrance to Bondi Beach and the Waverley area. We're proposing to upgrade 850m of Curlewis Street from Campbell Parade to Old South Head Road, including 700m of separated two-way bike path. Our community has said they want our streets to be safe and connected where pedestrians and bikes are balanced with vehicle access and parking.

As part of this project we're proposing to:

  • Establish a new separated two-way bike path from Campbell Pde to Wellington St
  • Create shared paths for pedestrians and bike riders at the western end of Curlewis St (from Old South Head Rd to Wellington St). These shared paths have been proposed based on the constraints and uses of the road environment.
  • Convert existing pedestrian crossings at Gould St and Wellington St into raised pedestrian crossings with a designated lane for bikes to cross
  • Create an improved outdoor dining environment
  • Establish new plantings and increase tree canopy by planting an additional 25 new trees
  • Install new paving and signage
  • Replace existing light poles with multifunction poles
  • Improve drainage, stormwater quality and flood mitigation
  • Install six new EV charging stations

View the concept design for the entire street

In addition to presenting a concept design for the entire street, we're presenting two options at both the western Old South Head Road end, and the eastern Campbell Parade end, for the community's consideration. We want your feedback to help finalise the design for these sections.

Our recommended options at the western and eastern end are based on what the community has told us in the past, as documented in the Our Liveable Places Centres Strategy

View the concept design options at the western and eastern ends.

Western end - Old South Head Rd intersection

A new shared path will connect Old South Head Rd to the new shared path and bike path on Curlewis St. Both options include a new raised pedestrian crossing at Simpson St, and continuation of the shared path east along Curlewis St. View the concept design options here.

Option 1: recommended design

This design removes the existing left turn slip lane from Old South Head Rd into Curlewis St, with the left turn movement still permitted, but controlled by the traffic signals. This creates additional public space at the corner which can be used for a wider shared path, additional parking and a raingarden.

Option 2: alternative design

This design retains the existing slip lane, allowing for a narrower shared path and smaller new turfing and landscaped areas. Pedestrians will still need to cross onto the traffic refuge in order to cross the street.

Eastern end - Campbell Pde intersection

A new separated two-way bike path will connect Curlewis St with Campbell Pde. Both options include new pedestrian crossings on Curlewis St west of Gould St, and on Gould St on the northern side of Curlewis St. View the concept design options here.

Option 1: recommended design

This design keeps the new bike path on the northern side of Curlewis St, crossing the pedestrian crossing near Gould St for a short distance at right angles.

Option 2: alternative design

This design sees the new bike path cross Curlewis St at the raised pedestrian crossing near Gould St. The bike path then continues towards Campbell Pde on the southern side of Curlewis St.
