Work progressing in Surry Hills

29 November 2016

Construction started in zone 19, Olivia Gardens and Wimbo Park (between South Dowling and Bourke streets) during November. Initial work in this area will include site establishment, heritage investigation, utility work and vegetation work.  

Work is continuing in zone 15, Devonshire Street between Chalmers and Elizabeth streets. The site has been extended to include a section of the pedestrian island on Chalmers Street. Devonshire Street is now closed to local traffic. Access for emergency services will be maintained.

A significant amount of utility work took place at the intersection of Devonshire Street and Riley Street during November. In response to community feedback, the bulk of utility relocation work was completed in a 56-hour shutdown in place of ongoing overnight works. We would like to thank local residents for their ongoing patience during this critical work.

The next Surry Hills Light Rail Business and Community Forum will be held at the Bourke Street Primary School on Thursday 15 December, from 5pm – 6.30pm. Drop by to meet the team, view our latest maps and have all your light rail questions answered.
