THE time table for works on building the light rail project in Surry Hills has been changed so the three work zones will now be aligned.
And Ward Park will no longer house a major works compound for the light rail project.
Transport for NSW and ALTRAC Light Rail announced the changes today in response to community feedback.
In a statement released by ALTRAC, the organisation confirmed it had aligned the start dates for the remaining three work zones on Devonshire St, Elizabeth St and Bourke St.
“Rather than the work in this area being staggered over three different start dates,” it said.

“In addition, we are pleased to confirm that Ward Park in Surry Hills will not be the
location of the major construction compound as originally intended.”
“Alternative options have been sought, leaving this green space much more accessible for the members of the local community.”
Over 7 kilometres of the 12 kilometre route is now under construction.
