Gosford Passing Loops
Two passing loops were built between Gosford and Narara Stations so freight trains on the Main North Line can let passenger services pass.
Two passing loops were built between Gosford and Narara Stations so slow-moving freight trains on the Main North Line can wait while passenger services pass.
The passing loops help avoid delays to passenger services and relieve a serious bottleneck. Freight access through northern Sydney and the Central Coast is now more efficient and reliable too.
Gosford Glow Path
As part of the project, Transport for NSW used an innovative product to make the path between Brooks Avenue and Manns Road glow in the dark. The path is made from a combination of Australian aggregate and a natural non-toxic ‘glow in the dark’ mineral, phosphorous zinc sulphide.
The minerals absorb the ultra-violet light from the sun during the day and make the path glow softly during the evening for 8 to 14 hours.
The ‘glow in the dark’ footpath encourages pedestrians and cyclists to cross under the rail bridge safely.
