Project: Carbon Footprint for Bourke St Cycleway


Client: City of Sydney Council

Location: Sydney NSW

Services Provided: Carbon footprint

Project Details:
City of Sydney constructed a cycleway along Bourke St in the inner city and wanted to know the carbon footprint associated with the works, and the potential ongoing carbon benefit from having the cycleways. KMH took a large number of inputs from construction material tonnages, fuel consumption and lighting to determine the carbon footprint for demolition and construction works, and also determined the number of car / bus trips that would need to be converted to bike trips to justify the construction of the cycleway.

City of Sydney were able to use the information to justify (or otherwise) the construction of future paths on a carbon basis alone.
