Buses to replace light rail


Regular Inner West commuter and occasional light rail user Tony Tkhon says the light rail is okay but the train system has plenty of room for improvement.

BUSES will replace all Inner West Light Rail services until next Monday as Transport for NSW construction crews take advantage of quieter traffic conditions in the Sydney CBD to complete work on South East Light Rail.
Coordinator General Marg Prendergast said that light rail services will resume between Convention and Dulwich Hill on January 15.
"We'll also take the opportunity to undertake regular maintenance and improvements to the Inner West Light Rail line during this period," she said.
"A lot of people head away for the holiday season, so it's a good time for us to get on with vital intersection, utility and track work as well as routine maintenance which needs to be completed when traffic is low to minimise disruption.
"This is just the beginning of a big year of construction ahead of us in 2018, coming off the back of a number of recent major milestones, including opening up George Street between King and Park streets and the installation of the first overhead wires in Randwick."
Customers travelling into the CBD are advised to use public transport and plan their journey using transportnsw.info.
