Sydney’s rail improvement plan given the green light | 8 December 2012

Work is to start on modernising Sydney’s rail network, reports The Construction Index.

The signing of an inter-governmental agreement has signalled the commencement of a AU$1.1 billion improvement project – which is designed not only to speed up trains and enhance the passenger experience, but to also remove some 200,000 trucks from Sydney’s roads each year.

The ambitious project in particular aims to streamline the Northern Sydney Freight Line that takes goods/commuters between the city and Newcastle to the North, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Federal infrastructure and transport minister, Anthony Albanese, commented on the plans: “At present, Sydney is the biggest bottleneck on the main line between Melbourne and Brisbane.

“The Northern Sydney Freight Corridor Upgrade project will ease this congestion by greatly expanding track capacity along this 160km-long corridor. After almost three years of detailed planning and reconstruction activities, we’ve today pressed the ‘go’ button on a project which will keep Sydney and Australia moving.”

Meanwhile, New South Wales Premier Barry O’Farrell described the project as “a Christmas gift” for local residents.
