Sydney’s new light rail bridge, which will extend over the Eastern Distributor that connects Surry Hills to Moore Park, is progressing very well with works estimated to be completed in the coming weeks.
NSW Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance has previously said that the ‘Eastern Distributor Bridge’ provides a crucial link between the CBD and the South East.
The bridge’s construction currently is not hindering the crews that are currently tunnelling in Moore Park, and will facilitate the ability to expand construction in Surry Hills.
Mr Constance spoke of the bridges importance and what it will provide for the region.
“The NSW Government is getting on with building the light rail from the city to the South-East, and with more than seven kilometres of the 12-kilometre route under construction, and Surry Hills and Moore Park now connected, it’s exciting to see this project coming to life.”
The light rail project in Surry Hills will include pedestrian-friendly footpaths, pocket parks, outdoor dining and a green corridor along Devonshire Street.
The total cost of the Sydney Light Rail Project is currently $2.1 billion. It is expected that light rail services will be operational for commuters by 2019.
