3LIGHT RAIL PROJECTIntroduction:The light rail project is a process, which involves the development of a light rail in thecity of Surry Hills. The focus of the light rail project is to aim for better connectivity in thestreets. The presence of parks for local recreations with great connectivity on the roads tofacilitate street walks and travel will be emphasized by the development of this project. Thepresence of existing parklands along with the newly made pocket parks will be considered in theproject. The main requirements of the project are to analyze the existing area and then commencewith the designs of the project.The following report discusses the specific details that are to be analyzed beforecommencing with the light rail project on the selected area. The project to be discussed is alsoused to address the problems that are associated with the transportation services of the targetedcity.Discussion:Before commencement of the light rail project, it is required to analyze the specificationsneeded for addressing the requirements of the project. However, the capacitive information andthe changes in speed are the main definitions to be considered when developing the light rail.The network that is included in the project for the development of light rail is included in thefoundation of the light rail project. The light rail is supposed to be low floor. The working of thelight rail will be based on the electricity provided by the electric cables. Thus, the authoritiesresponsible for the construction of the report is supposed to be efficient in the making of theproject. The project will be made in such a way to facilitate the efficient and time-saving

The light rail will also be constructed in such a way that helps in forwardand backward transport of the individuals simultaneously without any problems.Question 1: Design elements and infrastructureFig 1: Proposed network in the Surry Hills(Source: Sydneylightrail.transport.nsw.gov.au)Structure of the area:This section of the report discusses about the area that includes the project for light raildevelopment. The main overview topologies of the Surry Hills are discussed here.Demographics:The Surry Hills is supposed to be an inner city included in the New South Wales, Easternsuburbs of Sydney, Australia. The Surry Hills is present in the southeast direction of the businessdistrict present in Sydney. The Surry Hills are covered by many other provincial estates in all thedirections. They include the Darlinghurst, Chippendale, Haymarket, Moore Park, Paddington andthe Refdem (Hakansson, 2015). These estates surround the city of Surry Hills from all directions.
5LIGHT RAIL PROJECTProject overview:The city of the Surry Hills comprises of a mixture of all the residential, mid-industrialand the commercial building. The city is mainly associated with the fashion industry of Sydney.The project will be made in such a way that the main character of the city remains the same inthe eyes of the population concerned. There will be the presence of parks to help provideaesthetic value to the project commencement (Sydneylightrail.transport.nsw.gov.au, 2017). Theproject will also promote pedestrians movement across the city by making various frameworksacross the city. This will also enable the cyclists to enjoy the city in the same way as thepedestrians.
