Testing to Expand27 August 2019
Kensington and Kingsford is taking shape with the overhead catenary system installed in the precinct during August. The next stage is to test the system then start tram testing in the coming months.
Teams in the precinct are also working to finish installing the delineation kerb, paving, reinstating kerbs and guttering, footpaths and driveways. They are also reinstating roads with milling, re-sheeting and line marking works progressing through the area.
The last of the traffic control signals are being installed, as well as energising the pedestrian crossing signals north of the ES Marks stop. All stops in the precincts are energised.
Traffic switches are underway to align traffic to end-state conditions. The University of New South Wales (UNSW) western campus bus stop opened during August and work is already underway on the eastern side bus stop.
