The new infrastructure will have 19 stops, a bridge and a tunnel, Control Centre facilities, garages for light rail trains, substations and other buildings along the line. The project incorporates the relocation of important infrastructure services and an extensive urban regeneration.
It will run every four minutes during peak hours in the CBD and every eight minutes from Randwick and Kingsford. Each service will carry up to 450 passengers, the equivalent of nine standard buses.
It will be a critical element for Sydney’s public transport system, helping to reduce traffic congestion.
