They could just truncate every second tram at Moore Park for the interim, that would slightly reduce the fleet size needed.

Or Centennial Park, but there's not a lot of traffic sources at those stops (Surry Hills, Moore Park, Centennial Park).

Indeed the Randwick branch even overall will be far less popular than Kensington because the stop locations really support the destinations for patronage over the residential sources of patronage. So you'll get Coogee commuters interchanging, but, to the extent bus services remain, they'll be highly preferable for north Randwick residents.

Proposal: Build a new tram tunne, that goes under all this. Close the Surry Hills stop and make the whingers walk.You’d think Sydney was some country town with whiners like this.

I’m a leftist and think people should mostly be heard out, but honestly, some complaints are ridiculous.
