The CBD and South East Light Rail will play its part in ecouraging active transport and healthy lifestyles, with secure and undercover bicycle sheds to feature at the Randwick and Kingsford interchanges and bike racks planned for all other stops in the South East, Surry Hills and through past Central Station to Chinatown.

Further to that, extra bike racks are planned for small parks along the Devonshire Street section of the light rail route. Transport for NSW revealed the plan today, with exact numbers of bike sheds and racks to be confirmed during the detailed stop design phase.

The two South East light rail interchanges will be located in High Street at Randwick (near Avoca Street) and on Anzac Parade at Kingsford, south of Rainbow Street.

Stops that will have bike racks are:

  • Strachan Street (Kingsford Branch),
  • UNSW/Anzac Parade (Kingsford Branch),
  • Todman Avenue (Kingsford Branch),
  • Carlton Street (Kingsford Branch),
  • UNSW/High Street (Randwick Branch),
  • Wansey Road (Randwick Branch),
  • Royal Randwick Racecourse (Randwick Branch),
  • Moore Park,
  • Surry Hills,
  • Central Station,
  • Rawson Place, and
  • Chinatown.

As with existing rules for the Inner West Light Rail, bicycles will also be allowed to be carried on-board by customers, unless staff feel at busy times that it is unsafe to do so.
