Walking and cycling (active transportation) have great potential. Applying the walkable public space strategy could free up space for an urban environment, which could be created opportunities to address future social and environmental challenges. The Bays Precinct as a post-industrial site has been too long to put car uses before pedestrians and the cyclist. As well as the surrounding neighbourhood, Balmain and Pyrmont are still recognized as car-dominated areas, which limit the development possibility for community communication and urban ecology. My design strategy has developed a process to release the Bay’s outstanding fundamental assert by understanding the space from pedestrians and cyclists’ eyes. I ask, how What if walking & cycling between Pyrmont and Balmain introduce ecological recovery to the post-industrial site and ready for high-density urban development. My project will focus on the existing Glebe Island Bridge, the proposing White Bays Bridge and the proposing Waterfront Boulevard.
