Sydney has opened the new L3 Kingsford light rail section adding 5 more stops between Moore Park and Kingsford at Nine Ways, which is providing urban rail connection from Circular Quay to Kingsford.
The L3 Kingsford LRT is completing the 12-km CBD and South East Light Rail network served by 19 stops.
The L3 Kingsford Line is integrated with the L2 Randwick Line, which services the Randwick health precinct.
The LRT network “gives people in the South East a sustainable public transport system connecting people to and from the city. In the current environment our focus is ensuring essential travel options are available,” said the Minister for Transport Andrew Constance.
L3 Kingsford Line operates between 5am and 1am, with services every 4-8 minutes in the CBD and every 8-12 minutes in the South East.
The CBD and South East LRT extends from Circular Quay along George Street to Central Station, through Surry Hills to Moore Park, then to Randwick and Kingsford via Alison Road and Anzac Parade.
AUD 2.9 billion (USD 1.76 billion) was the total value of the project. The LRT system is expected to transport 13,500 passengers every hour.
