Light rail sneak peek for Kensington youngsters13 February 2020
Steady rain did little to dampen the enthusiasm of a group of young visitors to the Juniors Kingsford light rail terminus on Friday, 7 February.
The Kensington Public School students were invited to the stop for a special tour of a parked tram and to hear some important safety information.
Around 60 students from Year 1 and 2 hopped on board the tram to take a look around and become familiar with the vehicles ahead of services starting on the L3 Kingsford Line.
Soon passenger services will begin between Kingsford and Circular Quay, marking the start of services along the entire 12km CBD and South East Light Rail alignment.
The L2 Randwick Line, operating between Circular Quay and Randwick, opened on 14 December 2019.
Tram safety material is available for all primary schools as part of the Safety Town road safety education website.
