Light rail trackwork closures for January 2018

From Monday 1 January 2018, buses replace all light rail services between Central and Dulwich Hill until Monday 15 January. Light rail services will resume between Convention and Dulwich Hill from Monday 15 January with buses replacing light rail between Central and The Star until Monday 29 January.

This is due to essential work to be carried out where the light rail line will intersect with the new CBD and South East light rail line to allow for improved connections and accessibility to the CBD and South East Sydney in future. Additional regular maintenance work and other improvements will also be carried out while the line is closed.

During this time a replacement bus service will be in place and will run approximately every 5 minutes between Central and Lilyfield or every 10 minutes between Lilyfield and Dulwich Hill during the day and approximately every 30 minutes at night depending on traffic conditions.

Night replacement buses run between Central and The Star will run between 11pm to 6am Saturday to Thursday and midnight to 6am on Fridays.

Please follow the signs in place near closed light rail stops for directions to the nearest replacement bus stop.
