Light rail opens between the city and Kingsford
03 April, 2020

Passenger services are now running on the new L3 Kingsford Line between Circular Quay and Kingsford, completing the 12-kilometre CBD and South East Light Rail network.

The opening of the new line provides public transport for workers and the community in the south east as it services the important health precinct and the city.

Transport for NSW is focused on ensuring customers who need to undertake essential travel have options available to them. South East bus services will continue unchanged in the short term.

Operations will be fine-tuned over a period of time as the L3 Kingsford Line is integrated with the L2 Randwick Line and while services are bedded down.

It’s an important time for customers and the community to adjust and familiarise themselves with the new network, particularly when it comes to safety.

With light rail running down Anzac Parade through Kensington and Kingsford, it is vital all road users follow traffic signals and for pedestrians in particular to be aware that there are two-stage crossings to connect to the light rail stops.

The first passenger tram departed Juniors Kingsford at 5am and will run until 1am tomorrow.

From tomorrow, 4 April 2020, trams on both the L2 Randwick Line and L3 Kingsford Line will operate between 5am and 1am, with weekday services between 7am and 7pm running every 4-8 minutes in the CBD and every 8-12 minutes in the South East.
