EXPLORING 1 YEAR LATER, THE CONSTRUCTION and STATION SITES ALONG THE ROUTE OF THE CBD and SOUTH EAST LIGHT RAIL LINE TOUR

Come and join us on a special tour one year later exploring the light rail construction and viewing the station locations along the CBD and South East Light Rail Line route. Bring your camera to record images of the locations of station sites, associated road works and track formation together with other infrastructure construction to compare with your previous images. Also view the location of the former Sydney Sports Ground, Cricket Ground and Showground tramway sidings, the Royal Randwick Racecourse tramway branch and the construction of the Light Rail Depot adjacent to the Racecourse. An officer from Transport for NSW Projects Team has been invited to travel with us to provide an in depth commentary during the tour.

To fill in the day we will follow a number of former Sydney Tram Routes in the Eastern Suburbs area including Bondi Junction, Bronte and Watsons Bay lines. View the site of the former Rushcutters Bay Depot along the old tram route.
Bring a picnic lunch or purchase lunch at our lunch stop at the Watsons Bay terminus.

For our transport on this tour, we have requested to charter a suitable vintage bus from the exhibits at the Sydney Bus Museum at Leichhardt, that would have operated in service to replace the trams at the end of their operation on the line.

The Tour will commence at Central departing from the Lee Street Bus Interchange at the City bound Bus Stop at 0930hrs and with an expected return at 1630hrs. There will be some walking to construction sights in some areas.

Please wear appropriate footwear. Tour notes will be distributed on board the Bus. We are limited to 40 passengers on the vintage bus, so please book early.
