The Dulwich Hill Line (numbered L1 and also known as the Inner West Light Rail), is a light rail line in Sydney, Australia running from Central railway station through the Inner West to Dulwich Hill. The 23-stop, 12.8-kilometre (8.0 mi) route is the only operational light rail line in Sydney.

Background[edit]

Diagram of the Metropolitan Goods lines

Most of the alignment of the Dulwich Hill Line had its origins as the Metropolitan Goods railway line. From the time when the Sydney Railway Company was formed in 1848, it had been the intention of the company to build a freight terminal at Darling Harbour. To this end, a railway line was constructed between the Sydney Railway Station (the predecessor to Central railway station) and Darling Harbour, which opened on 26 September 1855.[1] This line was extended to Dulwich Hill via Lilyfield in 1922.[2] A short branch from Lilyfield to Rozelle served another freight terminal.

With widespread use as a freight line throughout the early 20th century, the use of containers and the decentralisation of freight terminals in Sydney to places such as Port Botany and Chullora, Darling Harbour traffic was reduced considerably. The port closed and the area was redeveloped in the 1980s.

Construction[edit]

Construction and conversion of the first section of line from Central station to Wentworth Park started on 25 January 1996 and took 16 months to complete.[3][4] The 3.6 kilometre line reused the former Darling Harbour goods railway line and the tram loop at Central station originally built for Sydney's former tram network, with a new section of track built along Hay Street to connect the two.

The original route opened for public operation with a limited 09:00 to 17:00 service on 11 August 1997 with three weeks of testing.[5][6] The official public opening was conducted by the then Premier of New South Wales Bob Carr on 31 August.[5][7]

Buoyed by the success of the original line, a four stop extension of the route opened on 13 August 2000.[6][8] This saw the light rail reach Lilyfield, which was then the limit of the closed section of the goods line.

Extension to Dulwich Hill[edit]

In 2009 goods traffic on the line between Rozelle and Dulwich Hill ceased and in February 2010 the Keneally Government announced a 5.6-kilometre (3.5 mi) extension of the light rail from Lilyfield to Dulwich Hill.[9]

Work to upgrade the track and remove the overhead wiring began in August 2010.[10] The project received planning approval in February 2011.[11] The extension was originally scheduled to open in 2012, but in September 2011 the newly elected O'Farrell Government announced that it would not open until 2014, and that the cost had risen from $120 million to $176 million. The Greenway walking and cycling path which was to run alongside much of the route was deferred. The new government blamed hasty planning by their predecessor for the delay and cost overruns, and the lack of an active transport masterplan for the deferral of the Greenway.[12]

John Holland Group was announced as the successful tenderer for the infrastructure works on 31 May 2012, covering the design and construction of the nine stations, bridge works, signalling and power supply.[13][14] The extension opened on 27 March 2014.[15] Patronage on the line increased by around 30% the week after the extension opened, leading to overcrowding.[16][17]

Ownership & operation[edit]

In March 1994 the Sydney Light Rail Company was formed. It was owned by Australian Infrastructure Fund (39%), Utility Trust of Australia (39%) and Legal & General (22%)[5][18] and was awarded a 30 year concession to operate the light rail system until February 2028 when ownership would pass to the State Government.[19] The service was originally operated by TNT Transit Systems.

In August 1998 Sydney Light Rail's investors entered a joint venture called CGEA Transport Sydney to purchase TNT Transit Systems, the owners of the Sydney Monorail. The shareholders in CGEA Transport Sydney were CGEA Transport (51%), Australian Infrastructure Fund (19%), Utility Trust of Australia (19%) and Legal & General (11%).[18] Following this purchase, operations of both the light rail and the monorail became subsidiaries of Metro Transport Sydney, which then contracted out the day to day operations to Transdev. In March 2012, Metro Transport Sydney was purchased by the Government of New South Wales.[20][21]

The line operated without serious incident until 7 October 2013, when two trams derailed within the space of 20 minutes. Sections of track were replaced in September and it is thought the new track damaged the wheels of the trams.[22][23] All services were suspended and replaced by buses. Services resumed between The Star and Lilyfield on 18 October, and along the full length of the line on 30 October.[24][25]

In February 2014, three consortium were short listed to build and operate the CBD and South East Light Rail line. The successful bidder will also take over operation of the Dulwich Hill Line from Transdev Sydney. The three shortlisted operators are Keolis (iLinQ consortium), Serco (SydneyConnect consortium) and Transdev (Connecting Sydney consortium), with the contract to be awarded in late 2014.[26][27]

Naming[edit]

As the original line of Sydney's light rail network, the Dulwich Hill Line lacked special branding and was simply known as the Sydney Light Rail - and later Metro Light Rail after the system was re-branded. Following the purchase of Metro Transport Sydney by the NSW Government and the announcement of the CBD and South East Light Rail, the line was referred to as the Inner West Light Rail. The line received its current name when it was extended to Dulwich Hill and was also given the number L1.

Fleet[edit]

When the line first opened, a fleet of seven Variotrams were built in Dandenong by Adtranz to operate the services. In conjunction with the opening of the Dulwich Hill extension in March 2014, the Variotrams were supplemented by four leased Urbos 2 vehicles. Twelve Urbos 3 trams have been ordered to boost services and replace the Variotrams and are expected to be delivered by the end of 2015.[28]

Stations[edit]

Standard facilities at each station

The 23-station[29] route extends for 12.8 kilometres (8.0 mi),[30] including 1.5 kilometres of on-street operation. Apart from Central, Capitol Square and Paddy's Markets, all stops are located on the route of the former railway line. The route sees 4-6 trams per hour between 06:00 and 23:00 from Sunday to Thursday, extending to 00:00 on Friday and Saturday. During the remainder of the day 2 trams per hour operate between Central and The Star.

Central is the eastern terminus of the line. It serves Central railway station and is located in an outside concourse area of the station, near the main waiting area and departure hall.

The stop consists of a single platform on a unidirectional turning loop (much like former South Ferry loop Metro station in New York) which is used to avoid having to terminate the vehicles. The route taken by the light rail around Central was not new; it had been used until 1957 as a route on the former Sydney tramway system, but in the opposite direction. The covered area in which the light rail stop is located was previously used as a staff car-park and bus interchange.

Paddy's Markets (formerly Haymarket) is located in Haymarket (near Sydney's Chinatown) in a public square between the flea market type Paddy's Markets and the Sydney Entertainment Centre.

Prior to its closure in June 2013, a neighbouring stop on the Sydney Monorail was located close to the light rail stop. The stop was originally called Powerhouse Museum with a pedestrian footbridge connecting the stop to the museum. In 2005 the monorail and light rail stops were renamed Paddy's Markets in a naming rights deal.[31]

The monorail was closed to make way for a major redevelopment of the Darling Harbour precinct. The plans include the demolition of the Sydney Entertainment Centre and car park, and creation of a 'creative quarter' named Darling Square featuring retail outlets, offices and apartments.[32] The works will also see the public square adjacent to the light rail stop replaced with new buildings. A pedestrian boulevard will run through the site providing improved access from the stop to Darling Harbour.

Lilyfield serves a residential area in Lilyfield. The stop is located at the edge of a wide cutting, beneath the City West Link road which passes overhead. It is the only station on the line to be built as an island platform. The entrance is on Catherine Street, with access to the platform either by stairs or a lift. The stop was the terminus of the line between 2000 and 2014.

During the corridor's time as a freight railway line, a junction between the Darling Harbour and Rozelle branches of the line was located to the west of the stop, with the stop located on what was the Darling Harbour branch. The junction also marked the western edge of Rozelle railway yard, which accounts for the width of the cutting.

Originally, only the stop's citybound platform was used. A set of points was located past the city end of the stop, allowing the outbound track to merge with the citybound track. There was no track adjacent to the outbound platform and the platform face was fenced off.

As part of the extension to Dulwich Hill, a stabling facility for four trams was built in the cutting, to the west of the stop.[33] The track configuration through the stop was also redesigned. In November 2013, the outbound platform was brought into use and the points at the city end were removed. A new crossover past the outbound end of the stop was installed to enable terminating trams to switch tracks and to provide access to the stabling facility.

Hawthorne is located at the border of Leichhardt and Haberfield. The stop's name is a reference to the Hawthorne Canal which runs parallel to the line through this area. The stop is also located close to the Hawthorne Canal Reserve and Hawthorne Parade.

The platforms are not located opposite one another, but are staggered, with the track crossing located between the platforms. The stop is located adjacent to parkland on both the Leichhardt and Haberfield sides. A footpath was built between the closest streets - Hawthorne Parade in Haberfield and Darley Road in Leichhardt - including a bridge over the canal. This improved pedestrian access between the two suburbs which had been limited by the railway.

Originally the stop was to have been built on level ground, negating the need for lifts or stairs. The location of the stop was moved 80 metres south and the bridge was moved 160 metres south to avoid an off-leash dog area in Hawthorne Canal Reserve.[34]

Lewisham West is located on the border of Lewisham and Summer Hill. The platforms are not located opposite one another, but are staggered, with the track crossing located between the platforms. A crossover is located at the city end of the stop.

The stop sits in an area which is currently experiencing urban renewal, with industrial buildings being replaced with medium density housing. The area on the eastern side of the stop featured various light industrial buildings, whilst the area on the western side of the stop is dominated by the former Mungo Scott flour mill. The stop is located adjacent to the flour mill, within walking distance of Lewisham railway station on the Inner West & South Line. The 2014 extension's Product Definition Report describes the positioning of the stop:

"The site provides the most practical balance between meeting the interchange opportunity with Lewisham Station and the opportunities of the catchment and its two known developments.
Patronage at this location is currently predicted to come approximately equally from walk-up catchment and from interchange. Future redevelopment will see this balance tip significantly in favour of catchment with the stop potentially becoming a focus of the local area." [36]

Access to the city is quickest via the heavy rail line, but the light rail provides north-south transport, in contrast to the heavy rail's east-west route.

Dulwich Grove is located in a cutting between New Canterbury Road and Hercules Street in Dulwich Hill. Dulwich Grove was the name of one of the area’s two earliest land releases and first use of the name Dulwich.[35]

The original design provided access to the stop from both Hercules Street and New Canterbury Road. The access from Hercules Street was subsequently removed from the design with a pathway provided to New Canterbury Road in its place.[37]

Dulwich Hill (known as Dulwich Hill Interchange during planning and construction) is located in the southern part of the suburb of Dulwich Hill, adjacent to Dulwich Hill railway station on the Bankstown Line. The stop sits at the end of Bedford Crescent, where the Rozelle branch line joined the main Metropolitan Goods railway line and is thus the terminus of the light rail.

In the 2014 extension's Environmental Assessment the stop was proposed to be located parallel to the railway station with direct access from Wardell Road. This was to have been achieved by widening the cutting used by the railway lines and removing angle parking on Bedford Crescent. It was proposed to construct an island platform with two tracks.

The design was altered after a review favoured moving the stop to the end of Bedford Crescent.[38][39] This design includes a single side platform and is further away from the railway station than the original proposal, but includes a connection to Jack Shanahan Park on the western side of the light rail alignment. This improves access to the park from the east and access to the stop from the west. Other improvements cited were reduced construction cost and environmental impact due to the elimination of the extensive work required to widen the cutting under the original proposal, and the reduced need to interface with RailCorp assets.[40]

The quickest access to the city is via the heavy rail line. The light rail runs to the north, in contrast to the heavy rail's east-west route.
