March and April light rail update
07 May, 2019
Work on the CBD and South East Light Rail has been forging ahead with systems fit-out, energisation and day and night tram testing and commissioning among the key priorities throughout March and April.
Overhead wires have now been installed in Randwick, Moore Park, Surry Hills and CBD South - remember to look up and stay safe!
Systems and tram testing is underway too, so be aware, there’s a tram there. To find out more about staying safe around trams and the rail corridor, visit the Sydney Light Rail safety page.
In the CBD, crews have been working on underground cable pulling, road and kerb works, paving and tree planting.
Light rail stops in the city have been progressively taking shape, with cabinet and canopy now installed at the QVB stop, systems fit-out underway on the Town Hall stop and paving works a big focus at the Circular Quay and Wynyard stops.
Finishing works, such as road, kerb and footpath restoration work, are largely complete in Surry Hills.
The first of four pocket parks for Surry Hills is taking shape on Holt Street where mobile parklets are creating a space for the community to enjoy. Crews are also making progress on the Waterloo Street pocket park.
Daytime tram testing is underway in Moore Park, which means visitors to the area will need to be mindful that road conditions have changed and to be aware of trams, especially at crossings and intersections.
A public safety campaign, “Be aware, there’s a tram there” is running as testing moves further into Moore Park and through Surry Hills.
