Work on the new light rail bridge over the Eastern Distributor, which connects Surry Hills to Moore Park, is due for completion by the end of September 2016.
NSW Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said the Eastern Distributor Bridge will connect the missing link of the route between the CBD and the South East. It will enable crews to continue tunnelling in Moore Park, and expand construction in Surry Hills.
“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,” Mr Constance said.
The light rail project in Surry Hills will include pedestrian-friendly footpaths, pocket parks, outdoor dining and a green corridor along Devonshire Street.
Commuters will be able to travel on new light rail services from 2019.
