Sydney's (long over due and budget) light rail extension between Circular Quay and Randwick opens this weekend with first service from Quay at 11am. Free travel on Sat and Sun.

Note that the section in George St is wire free using ground level power strips only energised whilst under the LRV. As has been the custom with Sydney's earlier tram system, the LRVs (same length as ours) are reported to be operated in coupled pairs - 66m!

The Kingsford branch part of the system is expected to open in Autumn next year.

3rd April, 2020, without hoopla due to current virus lock downs.
