Sydney's light rail construction erases public artwork in Chinatown
By Michelle Brown
Posted1 hour ago, updated53 minutes ago

The Sydney light rail project has been hit by more controversy, this time with valuable public artwork being removed during construction.
One of Australia's foremost contemporary artists, Lindy Lee, was commissioned to create the artwork called Cloud Gate about five years ago.
The integrated design installed in Chinatown's Thomas Street is valued at around $500,000.
Now part of the artwork — brass cloud shapes inlaid into the footpath — has been dug up and covered over with bitumen.

Lee said she would inspect the damage in person when she arrived in Sydney today.
"It's very disappointing because it was an awful lot of effort on my part," she said.​
"It just feels like the left hand wasn't speaking to the right hand.
"It was a very expensive project, because it's two streets of Chinatown, you can imagine, a lot of the budget went to infrastructure, so you'd think after all this expense they'd figure out a way of going around [it]."
Sydney Council has written to Transport for New South Wales to advise that it intends to restore the artwork and requires the department to provide the funding.
The council says it understands Transport for New south Wales will seek compensation from Acciona, the Spanish-based company building the light rail.
The NSW Government is locked in anacrimonious legal battle with Acciona over long delays in delivering the project.

Sydney Light Rail will not be completed until May 2020, construction company reveals

The Sydney Light Rail is more than a year behind schedule.
ABC NEWS: JERRY RICKARD
The civil construction company building Sydney's troubled light rail has revealed the project has been delayed again, and will not be complete until May 2020.
Key points:
  • Sydney's light rail project has been plagued by delays and court battles
  • It was supposed to be finished before the March 2019 State election, but has been delayed several times
  • Last month, the Premier said she was confident it would be open by the end of 2019
Bede Noonan, the Managing Director of Acciona Infrastructure Australia, told a parliamentary inquiry the NSW Government was informed of the two-month delay in August.
Last month, Premier Gladys Berejiklian said she was hopeful the project — which runs from Circular Quay to Randwick — would be open by late 2019.
It was initially supposed to be finished before the State Election, in March 2019.
Mr Noonan told the committee he was "sincerely sorry" for the disruption and pain caused by the project.
"I would like to assure the committee, residents and businesses that we regret the delays, disruption, and impacts that the Sydney Light Rail project has caused," he said.
Acciona is suing the NSW Government for more than $1 billion over claims of "misleading and deceptive" conduct.
The litigation relates to changes in guidelines provided by electricity company Ausgrid.
Mr Noonan said Acciona's biggest challenge had been dealing with Ausgrid's power assets and underground pits in George Street.
"This has had the greatest impact on the lack of certainty of the works and ultimately the disruption overall and impact on residents and businesses," he said.

Changing guidelines sparked delays
He said shortly after contracts were signed, Acciona received new Ausgrid guidelines.
"Acciona advised the Government that the new requirements set out in the Ausgrid Guidelines were completely different to what we had together developed ... and would result in a substantial change to the contract scope," Mr Noonan said.
"Acciona estimated at that time, it would result in a delay of 865 days... and an additional cost of $426 million, to the civil works only."
He described Ausgrid's new guildlines as the "root cause" of the project's delays.
"The new pit sizes pushed the excavation works into areas which had not been investigated by the Government for utilities," he said.
"We were then discovering utilities that had not been expected."​
Mr Noonan said the Government had "vastly misunderstood" the risk related to gas, electricity and sewerage utilities.
He told the inquiry Acciona also faced other "major scope changes" directed by the Government around 12 months after Acciona entered into a contract.
In total there have been more than 60 unexpected changes including alterations to lane widths and lengths on Anzac Parade and changes to tram stops at the QVB and the University of NSW.
Premier a 'liar': Foley
Transport for NSW's deputy secretary for infrastructure, Stephen Troughton, told the Upper House inquiry that he has "rejected their [Acciona's] schedule".
The last formal notification to Transport Minister Andrew Constance advised the project would be complete in March, Mr Troughton said.
"I haven't advised the minister of the formal time of when we are going to complete at the moment," Mr Troughton told the inquiry.
"I'm still holding them to March 2020 … I believe through our negotiations that we will improve on that date."
Opposition Leader Luke Foley has branded the Premier a "liar" and promised to launch a judicial inquiry to investigate the light rail "conspiracy" if elected in March.
"The public has been lied to by Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Minister Constance repeatedly on timetable, on cost, on the benefits of the project, on what's underground," he said.
He said it is the worst-delivered infrastructure project in the history of the state.
"You have to say at the very least there has been criminal neglect here by the people who presided over this project."

Sydney light rail construction filled Kensington home with diesel fumes, inquiry hears
BY NOUR HAYDARUPDATED WED 3 OCT 2018, 3:53 PM AEST
Email Facebook Twitter WhatsApp

PHOTO
Many local residents have complained that the ongoing construction has robbed them of sleep.
SUPPLIED: SYDNEY LIGHT RAIL
A frustrated resident living near the new light rail route in Sydney's south-east has told an inquiry that his life has been endangered by construction workers on several occasions.
Key points:
  • The inquiry is assessing the Berejiklian Government's response to construction impacts
  • One resident says his home has become unliveable, another details impact to her family
  • Premier says compensation has been offered, says she's already apologised
Kensington home owner Andrew Jordan told the NSW parliamentary committee that diesel fumes filled his home one night and it took five phone calls for work to stop.
"I woke up at midnight and my home was full of diesel fumes," Mr Jordan said.
"I found and photographed an offending portable light generator which was set up directly below my home with prevailing northerly wind blowing all the fumes from the diesel generator into the home.
"It took five phone calls between midnight and 1:00am to get the thing turned off."​



Mr Jordan said safety was also compromised when fire escapes to his property were repeatedly blocked.
"I live less than 10 metres from the construction zone [and] in some cases they've been working 20 centimetres from my property.
The CBD to South East Light Rail has been plagued by problems and is currently set to be completed in March 2020 — a year behind schedule.
The project has had an impact on all levels of life, Mr Jordan told the inquest, and he has put in more than 200 calls to the complaints line to record various "breaches".
"My home has become unliveable due to the workers being able to work 120 hours a week."

He said disruptive and noisy work had caused him excessive sleep deprivation and he is calling for independent noise monitoring to be implemented at all times.
Mr Jordan also wants to see the project stripped of its critical infrastructure tag, claiming this status has allowed it to get away with "blue murder" and not be held accountable.
He said he has been offered alternative accommodation at a total of more than $30,000 since late 2017 but has turned it down.
"I will not take it because it is substandard," he said.
"$200 a night would not get me any decent room in Sydney … at 30 minutes' notice."
PHOTO Diana Argirellis says there is no reprieve from the noise or flood lights.
ABC NEWS: BRIGID GLANVILLE

Mr Jordan is one of 10 residents and business owners giving evidence before the inquiry which is probing the adequacy of the financial and social response by the Berejiklian Government.
Randwick resident Diana Argirellis was reduced to tears while telling the inquiry how the noise, dust and vibration from the nearby Randwick stabling yard had impacted her young family.
She said an acoustic wall designed to keep out noise had been "completely ineffective".
"The Kensington stabling yard facility which I refer to as my backyard will be a 24-hour, seven day-a-week transport hub with no escape from the noise or flood lights," she said.
She said residents had been "cherry picked" for sound-proofing and air-conditioning while her property on Doncaster Avenue had been neglected.
"I cannot understand why our homes were never mitigated prior to the commencement of work."
Construction leading some to depression, anxiety

SUPPLIED: SYDNEY LIGHT RAIL

Distraught business owners vented to the inquiry about the emotional and financial toll of the protracted project.
Former Surry Hills Cafe owner Emanuel Tzirtzilakis said he lost many of his patrons after heavy building work began and is now heavily in debt.
He said the experience had a detrimental effect on the health and wellbeing of his whole family and he is "borderline checking into a psychiatric facility".
"It's posing such stress and anxiety and depression upon me that I'm on every medication there is," he said.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian said it is regrettable that people feel let down.
She said agencies overseen by Transport Minister Andrew Constance have provided millions of dollars in compensation to businesses.
"We can't take away from some of the personal stress that some of those businesses feel," she told reporters in Sydney.
"I've apologised on a number of occasions and do again for us taking a bit longer outside some of those businesses."

NSW Government was warned Sydney light rail would be poor value and overcrowded
BY GREG MISKELLYUPDATED TUE 18 SEP 2018, 8:09 PM AEST

Australia's peak infrastructure body rejected a $500 million funding request for the Sydney light rail, saying the project would increase congestion and did not stack up economically.
Key points:
  • The assessment claimed "the light rail system does not generate time savings for commuters".
  • It identified potential overcrowding, saying the system "would be at capacity immediately and would not be able to accommodate growth".
  • The document warned against ignoring the impact on small businesses, claiming "disturbance costs are likely to be substantial and are not included in the current economic appraisal".
A leaked assessment, delivered to the NSW Government in April 2013 and obtained by the ABC and Fairfax media, revealed Infrastructure Australia (IA) had major concerns about the project.
The NSW Government asked IA — which independently assesses the national infrastructure projects — to help fund the light rail, which has since been plagued by problems and delays.
The assessment reveals IA thought the line from Circular Quay to Randwick was poor value, and would be overcrowded and increase congestion on city roads.
It was sent to Transport for NSW officials.
Despite the negative findings, the State Government pushed on without federal support, funding the project with $220 million grant from Sydney City Council.
A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the light rail would have 15 services per hour between 7am and 7pm in both directions.
"Since the start of construction in 2015 we have already seen a 12 per cent drop in traffic entering in the CBD in the AM peak," they said.
"This is due to the traffic arrangements put in place to prepare for light rail. At the same time public transport use is up by 11.4 per cent."
EXTERNAL LINKSydney light rail assessment exposes doubts of project's benefits
Blowouts and delays
The project has been plagued by delays from complex excavation of underground cables, and a $550 million budget blowout.
The final cost to taxpayers may be over $3 billion, if a $1.2 billion damages claim by Acciona, the principal contractor, is awarded in the Supreme Court.
The 2013 assessment also took issue with the State Government's economic modelling and said the project's own figures suggest that trams may quickly clog Sydney's busy streets, and that taxis, cars and bus-lanes might offer better solutions.
"Congestion within Sydney's CBD could worsen with a light rail system by 12 per cent ... and congestion would also be worse along Anzac Parade," the report warned.​
The assessment also stated that the project was "not supported by Infrastructure NSW", which was set up in 2011 to assist the NSW Government in identifying and prioritising big projects.
It said Infrastructure NSW believed the plan "could be financially costly" and "disruptive" to businesses.
The assessment also asked why less costly options, such as an alternative plan for buses in the CBD, or "congestion tolling" of cars and road users in Sydney — similar to London — were not considered by the State Government.
"There does not appear to be a substantive consideration of options outside of light rail", the report concluded.

Sandringham line suspension causes commuter chaos in Melbourne after woman killed by train

VIDEO 0:44 Melbourne commuters endure long delays
ABC NEWS
Commuters using the Sandringham train line in Melbourne endured long delays on Monday night after an elderly woman was hit and killed by a train, causing the line to be suspended.

The woman was struck at a pedestrian crossing between Brighton Beach and Hampton stations about 4:00pm.

Long queues stretched from the Arts Centre, where replacement buses were departing, all the way across Princes Bridge to Flinders Street Station.

Passengers were waiting more than half an hour to get a seat on a replacement bus.


Trains on the line resumed about 6:30pm, but delays continued well into Monday evening as trains were positioned and the backlog of travellers were cleared.

Public Transport Victoria spokeswoman Georgia Main admitted many travellers had faced "a very tough trip home".

The disruptions on the Sandringham line came on top of planned service changes on the Frankston, Cranbourne and Pakenham lines.

Buses were replacing trains on those lines between Flinders Street Station and Caulfield to allow for construction work to be carried out.

On Twitter, Public Transport Users Association spokesman Daniel Bowen described the combination of events as "the perfect disruption storm".

Mat Burhop was left queuing for a replacement bus to Sandringham for more than an hour.

"All I want to do is get home and watch Game of Thrones," Mr Burhop said.
"I would wager I might get home in three hours.

"The Metro system always seem to fall apart. Whenever there is a crisis everything turns to shit. Getting home's a nightmare."

Amy Welsh is usually on the Frankston line, but decided to drive to Ripponlea and take the Sandringham line thinking it would be quicker.

She was queuing for over an hour and said the lack of communication was frustrating.

"They haven't told us where the line actually is. I had to go back 200 metres behind me and re-join the [queue for buses for the] Sandringham Line," she said.

ABC NEWS: JAMES OATEN
"They need more people to tell us where everything is going."

Miles Kendall, who was trying to get to Gardenvale, said he was confused by the situation.

"It's chaos everywhere," he said as he queued for a bus.

"It's a very slow moving line. I'm not sure there is enough buses up there."
