Ask any Sydey-sider and they'll tell you all about how heading out for a bevvie anyway near Sydney's CBD for the past couple of years has been a complete and utter shitfight.
Sydney peeps for like two years now.
With a combination of the city's much maligned lockout laws, seemingly eternal construction on every main street and bar after bar closing up shop, beer-enjoyers and party-goers alike have had it bloody rough in the Harbour City for fricken' yonks.
Well we've finally got some good news for at least one of these annoying af impediments to a night out, with the NSW Government today finally announcing the CBD construction of the new light rail finally has a firm end date, after missing proposed deadlines twice already.
The $2.1 billion construction plan, which has tore up the majority of Sydney's main strip of road George St, forcing endless frustrations for commuters, pedestrians and more importantly, small businesses which line the popular road, will now wrap-up show by the end of October.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced today that despite already being crazy over-due, 500m of the Circular Quay to Randwick tram-line is now being laid every week, with construction now seeing, "the light at the end of the tunnel" and the busy George St area set to be fully operating well before the busy Christmas shopping period.
One shitty Sydney thing down, an absolute fuck load to go.
