Partnering with Downer EDI, HCC has been involved in the earthworks preparation for the major light rail construction that is due to commence September 2017.
This project includes the removal of redundant rail infrastructure, foundation preparation, general fill and pavement constructions at Worth Place. View the 2017 construction overview.
The Newcastle Light Rail will see 2.7 kilometres of light rail track running from Newcastle Interchange at Wickham to Pacific Park, just 200m from Newcastle Beach. The route will use the old rail corridor for about one kilometre before moving onto Hunter and Scott Streets. Stops will include Newcastle Interchange, Honeysuckle, Civic, Crown St, Market St and Pacific Park.
