Light Rail Extension – Paddy’s Market & Capitol Square

These two separate projects required the expansion of both the up-track and down-track platforms at the Capitol Square Light Rail Station and the Paddy’s Market Station. Both Stations are located on Hay St in Sydney’s CBD.


Works included the demolition of existing footpath and kerb areas, the construction of a new extended reinforced concrete base for the new platform and commuter waiting areas, associated bitumen surface work, as well as paving and associated finishing works. Structus were able to effectively manage the high volume of pedestrians within the vicinity of the works. The site was in close proximity to the Entertainment Centre and Capitol Theatre; during construction the light rail trams were also fully operational so Structus had two teams of Protection Officers supervising the safety of construction workers and the public.


The two stations were completed in an accelerated twelve calender day program and utilised building methods and high strength concrete mixtures, 24 hour traffic management and efficient replanningto respond to rain delays to meet the clients milestone.
