Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian has announced the completion of nine new Inner West Light Rail Extension stops, including tracks and infrastructure, with vehicle testing now underway.
The $176 million Inner West Light Rail Extension will connect to the existing light rail service, which operates from Central to Lilyfield, and will run along the former Rozelle freight rail corridor, through the inner west to Dulwich Hill.
Ms Berejiklian said vehicle testing will continue in the coming weeks before passenger services begin next month, pending the outcome of the tests.
The extended service is expected to begin operating in March 2014, pending the successful outcome of testing and commissioning.
“This is an important public transport link and we are getting on with the job of building crucial public transport infrastructure for customers across this state, Ms Berejiklian said.
“The NSW Government is very proud this project is being delivered on time and on budget”.
