The Goods Line

The Goods Line urban renewal project opens up a new pedestrian and cycle network from Railway Square and Ultimo to Darling Harbour. It also set new benchmarks for public domain, having won an Australian Award for Urban Design 2014.

The Goods Line North transforms a disused rail corridor running parallel with Harris Street and Darling Drive from the Ultimo Road rail underbridge to the end of Macarthur Street, Ultimo.

The Goods Line creates a new urban hub and connects more than 80,000 tertiary students, locals and visitors to the many major attractions of Sydney’s much-loved Darling Harbour. The corridor features a series of elevated spaces or platforms which can be used for a variety of public entertainment, recreation, study and other activities. It further connects arts, education and cultural institutions along Sydney’s Cultural Ribbon.
