Light Rail works start on Anzac Parade: Major impacts for UNSW

Posted 21 November 2016

What is happening?

From 10pm on Friday 25 November 2016, Light Rail construction work will commence right outside the UNSW Kensington campus. A new works zone will be established on Anzac Parade, between High and Barker streets.

The new construction zone will bring construction activity and disruptions to our doorstep. UNSW has lobbied TfNSW to complete the most disruptive works between November 2016 and February 2017, while UNSW is relatively quiet (compared to teaching and examination periods).

How will the works affect you?
  • Anzac Parade will become a 24-hour clearway. There will be no more on-street parking in this area.
  • Anzac Parade will be reduced to four lanes of traffic – two in each direction – and a 50km/h speed limit will be introduced.
  • Bus stops on Anzac Parade, opposite UNSW, will be relocated. See Bus Changes for details.
  • Cyclists are encouraged to use dedicated bike paths along Houston Road for north/south travel to campus.
  • There will be no right turn from Day Avenue onto Anzac Parade.
  • Light rail tracks will be laid within main intersections around the Kensington campus over the summer break. See Intersection Works for details.
  • Due to changed traffic conditions, please allow plenty of additional travel time for journeys to and from the Kensington campus.
