Foveaux Sub-surface Proposal – what has been proposed

There has been a lot of discussion about the Foveaux St Sub Surface route that was proposed by Robin Bean to Transport NSW – only to be rejected. So that you have all the information, we have attached:

  • Robin’s Executive Summary of the Proposal
  • The presentation made to Transport NSW
  • Press Release

Executive Summary 16 Sept 2013

Community presentation DRB 30-08-13-3-1

Press Release TfNSW FSS response 08.11.13

It is a completely viable route that Transport NSW has just discounted without giving taxpayers a reason. Spending $1.6billion means that we have to get it right. So why not the Foveaux St option? The numbers seem to stack up.

Get it Right

The extension of light rail is supposed to improve transportation for Sydney. The Government’s proposal for the spine of the South East Light Rail network is right through the heart of Surry Hills, involving the demolition of homes, interruption of parklands and trees, and use of narrow streets. Some local engineers decided that they would look further into the route as it didn’t make a lot of sense to them. These engineers concluded that there was a better route that is vastly superior in delivery of the Government’s stated deliverables for the Light Rail. Here’s the story!
