Sydney’s problematic light rail now set to make tracks as far as Central

Sydney’s light rail trams tested the tracks from Surry Hills to Central Station for the first time on Tuesday night.

This was a big step for the multi-billion dollar project which has been dogged by construction complications and delays.

The light rail line originally planned to open by March this year, is now set to open in stages, with the trams on track to take passengers from Randwick to Circular Quay by December.
