New images of how light rail will transform Randwick have today been released showing key locations along the route including Alison Road, Wansey Road, and High Street.
Bruce Notley-Smith, Member for Coogee said it was exciting to give the community a new look at Randwick’s light rail future, particularly the new High Street terminus which will revitalise the High Street precinct.
“The Randwick terminus on High Street is a big win for residents, as well as the health and education sector,” Mr Notley-Smith said.
“The transport hub will improve vital connections to bus stops, shops and services in the Randwick Town Centre, as well as the University of NSW, the Sydney Children’s Hospital and Prince of Wales Hospital.”
Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said the new images show the community that the long term gain is worth the short term pain.
“We are really charging on with light rail construction in the south east with tracks already in the ground on parts of Anzac Parade and Alison Road,” Mr Constance said.
“I know the construction of this project has come with some disruption and I thank the residents and local businesses for their patience as we get on with the job of building Sydney’s light rail future.”
The CBD and South East Light Rail will run from Circular Quay to Randwick and Kingsford and will offer high frequency ‘turn up and go’ transport services up to every four minutes in the peak. Services will commence in 2019.
Major light rail construction on High Street is expected to commence in March 2017.
