Eddy Avenue is a street in the Sydney central business district of New South Wales, Australia. It runs west from Elizabeth Street to Pitt Street outside Central station.

Description

Eddy Avenue runs in a north-westerly direction for 200 metres from Elizabeth Street to Pitt Street. To the north Belmore Park runs along its full length, while to the south is Central station.

Three lanes of road traffic run in each direction. On its northern side it has a row of bus stops that are served by State Transit services to the Eastern Suburbs. On the southern side, two bus stands were served by Sydney Buses services to Railway Square, Sydney Explorer sightseeing services and Greyhound Australia interstate services. In April 2017, the coach bays relocated to the western forecourt of Central station.[1]

Until the early 1960s, Eddy Avenue had tram lines running down its central reservation. In May 2017, construction is scheduled to commence on the CBD and South East Light Rail.[2] In July 1990, the 1910 built tram waiting shed was demolished as part of the construction of the coach terminal.[3]
