Taking to the streets and getting the feel of Sydney under your feet is a great way to see the sights and sounds offered by New South Wales' expansive capital city.
A new plan announced by the City of Sydney earlier this month has outlined an initiative to make the region easier to explore.
After consultation with the public, the Walking Strategy and Action Plan has been released. This highlights key actions to help make walking more accessible to people of all ages.
Lord mayor Clover Moore said enabling people to walk and commute with ease is an important part of Sydney's future development, pushing for more streamlined infrastructure and improved safety for pedestrians.
"The City is investing $50 million to improve the quality and safety of the most popular walking routes in central Sydney, with upgraded footpaths and improved lighting. We're also investing a further $10 million in a wayfinding network that will clearly direct people to their destination and places of interest," said Ms Moore in a 6 May statement.
Owners of property in Carlton could look forward to these improvements, helping to make Sydney a far more accessible region for their day-to-day needs.
