Safer Cities: State partnerships

Transport for NSW is collaborating with a number of agencies within the state government to deliver projects under the Safer Cities Program.

These partnerships will carry out pilot initiatives to improve the perceptions of safety for women, girls, and gender diverse people as they are moving to, through and within public spaces and transportation hubs.  

Potential interventions that will be delivered through these partnerships may include: improved accessibility for those with disabilities and limited mobility, lighting, wayfinding, public art and activations. The integration of smart technology and digital plumbing will also be explored.

The program will deliver infrastructure improvements across NSW on state government-owned land in partnership with 

  • Cities Integration, Transport for NSW
  • Greater Sydney Parklands
  • Placemaking NSW
  • Smart Places & Net Zero Cities, Transport for NSW
  • South Eastern Sydney Local Health District
  • Transport Access Program, Transport for NSW
  • Western Sydney Local Health District.

More information on the Safer Cities: State partnerships will be available soon.
