PAINTED TRAM VOICES OPINION OF
trams to the City” printed boldly across the side of a tram launched
today, states the opinion of thousands of Sydneysiders who want
to see a light rail service from Central Station to Circular Quay.
close to 5000 petition signatures from Sydneysiders and a mass of
support from prominent members of the community, including the Lord
Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore - it is now just a matter of
NSW State Government making a decision.
to build a light rail network to service the CBD, which features
a loop from Central Station to Circular Quay, along either George
Street or Castlereagh Street , was submitted to the State Government
by Metro Transport Sydney in May.
for travel into the CBD has already reached chaotic proportions.
Existing bus and rail cannot cope, with gridlock, overcrowding and
service breakdowns causing disruption almost daily.
of many is that Sydney will become an unliveable city as the population
Transport CEO, Kevin Warrell said, “Sydneysiders understand a light
rail network in the city is more than just a nice idea. Trams would
provide a fast, reliable, clean, most importantly green, mode of
transport for commuters, residents and visitors.
State Government accept the proposal, the tram promises to reduce
traffic chaos and pollution in the CBD.” he said
get approval from the State Government to go ahead in the next few
months, we could see a tram to Circular Quay as early as 2007,”
said Mr Warrell.
TRAMS MEANS EASIER COMMUTE FOR ILLAWARRA RESIDENTS
tram service from Sydney 's Central Station to Circular Quay will
mean an easier commute for many of the Illawarra residents who travel
to Sydney 's CBD to work on a daily basis.
proposed CBD tram service, which is currently under consideration
by the State Government, will shuttle approximately 40,000 people
per day, including commuters from the Central Coast , Newcastle
, Blue Mountains and the Illawarra, from Central Station to Circular
Quay via George Street or Castlereagh Street.
CBD tram would feature 13 state-of-the-art trams each capable of
carrying 200 passengers that would depart Central in 2.5 minute
intervals at peak hour.
Kevin Warrell , CEO, Metro Transport Sydney said “Introducing the
tram back to Sydney 's CBD is particularly relevant for Illawarra
Illawarra trains terminate at Central Station, so those who work
in the CBD need to change trains from the intercity platforms to
the suburban platforms, having to take a number of flights of stairs
to continue their journey,” he said.
well as being inconvenient, this could potentially add to what is
already a reasonable commuting time,” said Mr Warrell.
CBD trams depart from Central Station adjacent to where the Illawarra
would mean a short 10 metre walk across the concourse from the intercity
train platforms to the tram platform where commuters will be met
by an environmentally friendly and clean, uncrowded high capacity
transport service which will easy deliver them to one of 10 above
ground stops in the City,” he said.
would run from 6.00am to midnight and depart every 2.5 minutes in
peak hours, this means that there will always be a tram waiting
to shuttle Illawarra commuters through the City when they arrive,”
said Mr Warrell.
proposed tram service would have com bin ed tickets with trains
and buses providing an easy, seamless transition from trains to
trams for Illawarra commuters.
existing tram service currently departs from the upper colonnade
at Central Station and travels to Lilyfield in Sydney's inner west
via Chinatown, Darling Harbour, Star City and Sydney's Fish Market.
hope to see the CBD tram in 2007 and we believe that it is the only
suitable mode of transport to mange the busy commuter peaks. We
hope it will also make the lengthy commute from the Illawarra a
little more manageable,” said Mr Warrell.
THROUGH LEICHHARDT TO THE CITY
Sydney, met with The Hon. Sandra Nori, MP recently to discuss options
to extend the light rail from Lilyfield into Norton Street and along
Parramatta Road to the City.
Transport Sydney (MTS) has proposed a suitable extension route for
the light rail system beyond Lilyfield to further service the inner
west and reduce traffic and pollution on Parramatta Road .
proposed route is a loop through the inner west, taking in Norton
Street and Parramatta Road providing light rail connections within
the area, as well as to and from the CBD.
Lilyfield light rail station the route would run under the City
West Link into the currently vacant Balmain Road site. It would
then run west into William Street , turn left into Norton Street
and continue to Parramatta Road . From there trams would travel
down Parramatta Road towards the city where they would meet the
proposed CBD tram network at Central.
CBD tram proposal, which MTS submitted to the State Government in
May, includes a light rail loop from Central Station to Circular
Quay, along either George Street or Castlereagh Street . This CBD
loop could form the central hub of an extensive inner city light
rail network, which would revolutionise Sydney 's inner city public
transport. The inner west routes would be a key part of this network.
Nori, State Member for Port Jackson, has been a long standing supporter
of Light Rail. She has supported the CBD proposal's aim to revitalise
public transport and access to Sydney 's City.
been pursuing this issue for a long time because I think it's important
for residents and tourists to have environmentally sustainable,
safe and accessible transport,” said the Ms Nori.
CBD extension of the light rail, which is currently under consideration
by the State Government, would mean a reduction of traffic, particularly
bus traffic , in the city of Sydney.
Paul Espie , Chairman, Metro Transport Sydney explained, “The suggested
Parramatta Road light rail route would connect with the CBD loop,
which would provide high capacity, convenient transport from the
inner west through to Circular Quay, without the current traffic
congestion and pollution.
the light rail in Norton Street would help to connect this vibrant
commercial hub into the rest of inner Sydney , and make travel within
the inner west much easier. Light rail is common in Europe and very
successful - this proposal is entirely in keeping with maintaining
the unique character of ‘Little Italy' “
in Europe and North America shows that introducing a light rail
system can rejuvenate suburbs, increase land values and increase
retail business. Light Rail would form a key part of the Government's
proposals for revitalising the suburbs along Parramatta Road,” he
see the extension of the current light rail service from Central to
the Circular Quay and along Parramatta Road and through Leichhardt
as the beginning of a comprehensive inner city light rail system which
could ultimately service areas such as Bondi, Uni of NSW and Green
Square,” said Mr Espie.

HAVE A METRO SEXUAL EXPERIENCE WITH
METRO MONORAIL SPEED DATING
on its way and Sydney’s Monorail is doing its bit for love
matching with a “date-fest”, two months of special high-flying
speed dating on the Monorail.
With sessions run most
Saturday evenings in September and October, fun loving and adventurous
singles will speed through the dating process, spending just the
short time between Monorail stations with a prospective suitor.
It works like this, after
some pre-dating refreshments the “love train” with 10
male and 10 female daters will depart the Darling Park Monorail
Station at Darling Harbour. In each carriage will be two couples,
taking the chance to get to know each other until the Monorail stops
at the next station. Here they will alight, change carriages
and meet another ‘date’.
Each person has only five
minute to determine if they are compatible, before they reach the
next stop and partner change - it’s musical chairs dating
without the music!
The Monorail will loop
around the city four times an hour, taking in some of Sydney’s
best views… a truly romantic outlook for a first date. However,
with a station stop every five minutes potential love matches won’t
have a lot of time to enjoy the scenery, if they want to get to
know each other.
At the end of the hour
and ten dates, participants make a note of the people that they
would like to see again on their private match card, and if that
consent is mutual their details are exchanged the next day via email.
Speed Dating, introduced
into to Australia by Blink Dating, was first developed by an American
rabbi in 1998 as a way of helping young Jewish men and women meet
spouses of their faith. It soon caught on around the world, with
Australia being no exception and singles taking to the concept in
their droves. Blink Dating now hosts regular events in Sydney, Melbourne

MONORAIL NAMED "HOT"
Shocked as Monorail is named “Hot” by Australia’s
leading style gurus.
Still reeling from a mention
on Rove Live last night, Sydney’s Metro Monorail has now been
named “Hot” by leading doyens of style TRIPLE J’s
Adam Spencer and Will Anderson.
“I am absolutely
stoked” said the 16 year old Monorail. “I have
copped a lot of criticism since I began. I have always felt very
daggy but now I’m “hot” and I couldn’t be
happier”, said the Monorail
The retro movement is
all about bringing back the 80’s and Sydney’s Monorail
has to be the epitome of all that is retro “hot”.
Forget bubble skirts, fingerless gloves and mesh shirts –
Metro Monorail is the ultimate retro mode of transport.
Built in 1988, Sydney Metro Monorail was
never everyone’s favourite icon but now being “hot”,
retro and well connected to all the new hot spots like Cockle Bay
and King Street Wharf, Metro Monorail is coming into its own.
“I worked very hard to get where I am today – I had speed
dating and even a star trek wedding. I really have to thank
all those faithful Monorail users who have got me where I am today”.
RETURNING TRAMS TO CENTRAL SYDNEY
Transport submits Light Rail CBD extension plan.
Today Metro Transport
Sydney submitted its proposal to extend the current light rail network
from Central Station to Circular Quay to the Department of Infrastructure,
Planning and Natural Resources (DIPNR).
Following extensive feasibility
studies and consultation with stakeholders, Metro Transport Sydney
has determined the two most suitable options for the light rail
network extension as George Street and Castlereagh Street, with
Metro Transport Sydney preferring the George Street route.
Giving commuters a clean,
green and efficient way to traverse the city, trams provide a solution
to the current problems of traffic congestion and pollution.
Featuring 13 state-of-the-art
trams capable of carrying 200 passengers each, running from 6.00am
until midnight every day and every 2.5 minutes in peak hours, the
proposal would see a new high quality interchange between buses
and trams at Central Station as well as joint ticketing with buses
and trains for a seamless interchange.
$180 million, financed with a combination of private and public
investment involving 18 months of staged construction, it is considered
that the best time to build the extension would be in the immediate
period after the opening of the Cross City Tunnel, as the respite
from traffic across the city would mean minimal inconvenience.
According to Metro Transport
CEO Kevin Warrell “demand for travel into the CBD has reached
a point where car traffic is chaotic and existing bus and rail modes
cannot cope, with gridlock, overcrowding and service breakdowns
Europe and North America suggests that introducing a CBD light rail
system will not only increase land values but would also increase
retail business and revitalise the city,” he said.
The Metro Light Rail would
provide a fast, reliable and clean mode of transport for commuters,
residents and visitors, and if the proposal is accepted, some bus
routes into the city would be modified, reducing congestion in the
“We expect that
catching a tram through the CBD to Circular Quay and back will be
a very popular way to travel. It is an easy and pleasant way
to get through the city and customer approval rates for the current
Light Rail system are substantial higher than other modes.
We estimate about 40,000 people will use the tram every day,”
said Mr Warrell.
Metro Transport Sydney’s
proposal would also mean significant cost savings for the State
Government on rail and bus networks, as well as providing the infrastructure
to further extend the service to the east, west and south, ultimately
creating a superb inner city transport network.
“We see the extension
of the current light rail service from Central to the Circular Quay
as the beginning of a comprehensive inner city light rail system
which could ultimately service Bondi, Uni of NSW and Green Square
as well as Parramatta Road,” said Mr Warrell.
The Metro Light Rail currently carries four
million passengers a year along the existing seven kilometre route
from Central Station to Lilyfield. Metro Transport has successfully
operated the system since 31 August 1997 managing the construction
of the Lilyfield extension in the year 2000.
