The Goods Line (previously known as The Ultimo Pedestrian Network) is a new, award-winning public space which will provide improved pedestrian and cyclist access and circulation from the Railway Square bus and train interchange into the south-west corner of Darling Harbour, which is currently being planned as the new convention and exhibition centre for Sydney.
The 500 metre long elevated public space will be used to link many of Sydney’s key cultural and educational institutions which are located along its edges, such as UTS Frank Gehry Design Building, Transgrid Redevelopment, UPN south, upgraded Powerhouse Museum and new student accommodation at UTS.
ACOR’s multidiscipline team completed work with ASPECT Studios and The Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority on The Goods Line providing Civil, Structural, Hydraulic, and Electrical Consultancy Services.
The project won the 2014 Australia Award for Urban Design, in policies, programs and concepts in the small scale category. This award recognises design initiatives, projects, built developments and publications that make a signiﬁcant difference to the places, spaces, buildings and infrastructure of our cities.
