Building For The Future

Saturday 28 March 2015 New South Wales Election

Victor P Taffa has a 5 Point Plan For Sydney at the 28 March 2015 New South Wales Election and Point 3 is a City Circle Light Rail Line to service nearby Chinatown, Barangaroo, Walsh Bay Wharves, The Historic Rocks, Circular Quay, Chifley Square and Hyde Park.  A pedestrian walk from Wynyard Railway Station is a good idea but hardly a plan that is Building For The Future.

This plan has been submitted to the New South Wales Transport and Planning Departments.

  • Central Station Colonnade
  • Hay Street
  • Sussex Street

The Melbourne Cricket Ground is served by Tram and Heavy Rail Train Services. Similarly both the Sydney Cricket Ground and Randwick Racecourse will be served by both Heavy Rail Train Services and Light Rail Services.

During the heyday of the Sydney Tramways a siding existed at Randwick Racecourse that resembled a 6 Platform Railway Station complete with Pedestrian Bridge that cleared 90,000 racegoers 90 minutes after the last race. The siding was locked up after the last Tram cleared the racegoers.

In the Inner East Light Rail EIS there are plans to turn this former tramway siding into a Stabling Facility for Light Rail Vehicles. Among the 4 EIS Submissions that Victor P Taffa lodged for this project, he has proposed that a Railway Station be built underneath the old Tramway Siding and designed in a similar manner to that of Olympic Park Railway Station instead of the proposed Light Rail Stabling Facility. Victor’s plan is contained in www.isput.com.au
