Sydney trams to make a comeback

SMH reports the plan will committ to construction of a light rail link from Central to Randwick before the next election.

The State Government's confirmed a new light rail line will be built through central Sydney, meaning cars are banned from 40 per cent of George Street, as Derek Peterson reveals.
Sydney will get a new light rail line, and better road-access to the airport - but part of George St will be closed, under the State Governments latest transport master plan. Tim Webster & Tracey Spicer discuss the master plans with Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore.
A $1.6 billion light rail line will be built between Circular Quay and Sydney's eastern suburbs, reducing congestion in the city, according to NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell, who speaks with Tracey & Tim about his transport plans.
KEY FACTS ABOUT SYDNEY's LIGHT RAIL PLAN:
$1.6 billion estimated cost
Links Circular Quay and Central via George Street, Moore Park, Randwick Racecourse, UNSW, and Prince of Wales Hospital at Randwick.
15 minutes to get from Central to Circular Quay, half the current time

9000 people can be transported each hour in each direction
