One day trams may again run in Sydney, rather than a light rail that takes people to where they don't want to go, and is being extended so even more people can go for longer trips to where they don't want to go. I heard some heresy about putting trams back back along Anzac Parade into the city. Now that would be putting trams where people do want to go.
With a digger, you can have ready made trams tracks and James would not have to catch a bus to work but could ride on a tram.
The tracks are rising in Harris Street, Ultimo, so not much digging will be required.
I was just saying to R that it amuses me that contractors may quote to rebuild a road, they get to work and discover tram tracks underneath the road surface and so they have underquoted as more work will be involved in removing the rails. I suppose there are maps that authorities use that tell them where tracks maybe. One thing for sure, there would not be too many staff around now who are old enough to say, careful on your quoting here, a tram used to run down this street.
