Work starting in new zones in Kensington and Kingsford

26 March 2017

Light rail construction is ramping up in Kensington and Kingsford, with work getting underway in a new construction zone in March, and another to follow in April.

Work started in Anzac Parade between Todman Avenue and Abbotford Street (zone 28), from 3 March 2017. All parking and bus lanes in this area are now general traffic lanes and a 24-hour clearway is in place in both directions. For more information about traffic changes, please see the latest construction notification.

From 1 April 2017, work will start in, Anzac Parade south of Rainbow Street (zone 31) – the location of the new light rail terminus. At this time, parking will be removed from the northbound carriageway of Anzac Parade between Sturt Street and the Nine Ways roundabout and a 24-hour clearway introduced.

From the evening of Sunday 2 April, the light rail construction site will occupy both of the car parks in the median of Anzac Parade, as well as the adjacent traffic lane on the northbound carriageway and the adjacent parking lane on southbound carriageway. Randwick City Council provided alternative parking spaces in the Anzac Parade median, adjoining the existing car park to Botany Road, before work started in this zone.

Anzac Parade will remain open during all work, with two traffic lanes generally maintained in both directions.  

For further traffic changes please refer to the construction notification or visit Traffic control will be in place to assist motorists, pedestrians and cyclists with the new traffic arrangements in and around High Street.

In addition to construction within the zones, Day Avenue has now been closed for construction work and the installation of light rail tracks.  On Friday 14 April, left turns into Day Avenue from Anzac Parade and left turns out from Day Avenue to Anzac Parade will be re-opened. Traffic controllers will again be on site to direct traffic. Please follow signage and drive to conditions.
