NSW government announces options for light rail to Randwick

The Sydney Morning Herald today reported that the NSW Minister for Transport announced options for bringing light rail to Randwick.

The government is considering running trams from Central Station through Devonshire Street to Anzac Parade but is also looking at a tunnel between the station and Anzac Parade.

The identified routes mark the first stage of the government's light rail feasibility study.

Identified options

One of the four proposed routes linking George Street to Anzac Parade extends from Sydney Town Hall and along either Oxford or Campbell streets.

And two options run directly from Central through Moore Park to Anzac Parade. One is a surface line along Devonshire Street and another would be a tunnel.

Earlier documents released by the government show it is aiming to award tenders for any extension of the light rail network by the start of 2014.
