Also I don't know if any of my previous pics have clearly shown, but there's a switch approximately at Wolfe Street so that Queens Wharf can be an intermediate terminus.
This would primarily be due to the Newcastle 500 Supercars event which uses Watt Street as part of the course, thus cutting off access to Newcastle Beach stop.

And similarly about Market Street being renamed Queens Wharf?

Link to the Geographical Names Board proposal (pdf): http://www.gnb.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets ... _Stops.pdf

The proposed names are:
• Newcastle Interchange Light Rail Stop located within the Newcastle Interchange
precinct. It is on the corner of Stewart Avenue and Beresford Street.
• Honeysuckle Light Rail Stop located adjacent to Kuwumi Place, between Steel
Street and Worth Place.
• Civic Light Rail Stop located on Hunter Street between Auckland Street and
Merewether Street.
• Crown Street Light Rail Stop located on Hunter Street near the intersection of
Crown Street.
• Queens Wharf Light Rail Stop located on Scott Street near the intersection with
Market Street.
• Newcastle Beach Light Rail Stop located on Scott Street near the intersection with
Pacific Street.

I assume the proposals were accepted.

The October newsletter still makes no mention as to whether these names have been confirmed. https://revitalisingnewcastle.nsw.gov.a ... widget-452

I guess we'll find out once the signage is installed.

I'm amazed at how fast the Newcastle tram line has progressed in such a short time, meanwhile in Sydney with the CSELR...

The CSELR would be more complex compared to Newcastle plus other issues such as the NSW govt vs Acciona in court and the deliberate go slow on construction over the past 12 months. Even before the deliberate construction go slow, work was already very slow as after the first 12 months, George St looked looked more like a storage facility rather than a construction site, no major excavation work was evident regarding the work to be done on the underground utilities.

Note, “alleged” go slow. Whilst progress has been glacial, it has been stated that waiting for agreements with utility owners and other planning activities have caused delays which have prevented work proceeding. Unless you’ve got rock solid inside information, this is the kind of statement that gets repeated as fact so often it becomes accepted as fact...
