There’s three calls for celebration with construction on Sydney’s Light Rail completely finished in three zones across the South East side of the city.

More than 4.6km of track has been laid along Alison Rd and parts of Anzac Parade, and work is pushing ahead in other zones on Anzac Parade where 3.9km of track has been laid.

And with the track now done and dusted, overhead wires will next be installed, followed by testing of the light rail vehicles along this section.

“Construction of the light rail is making strong progress in the South East with more than 8.5km of track installed along the route, completing the sections along Alison Road and on Anzac Parade, between Todman Avenue and High Street,” said Sydney Light Rail Coordinator General Marg Prendergast.

“As well as the completion of track, work is continuing on the first light rail stop on Alison Road.

“Seeing the progress on this important section of the light rail route shows how far we’ve come with construction in the South East and when vehicle testing begins in comings months, we will start to see just how much this project will transform this area.”

Light rail is predicted to transform public transport in the South East, by providing reliable turn-up and up services, running services every four minutes between the CBD and Moore Park and eight minutes on the branch lines in each direction.
