Not In My Back Yard
The route of the tram lines quite literally passes through the back yards of the three-storey apartment block called Olivia Gardens. A resident was mowing his back lawn when I took these photos. The Deputy Director General of TfNSW Chris Lock told the Surry Hills forum that the Department was still working on alignments and he would not say if all the apartments would be demolished. If they were not demolished they would presumably be added to the large stocks of public housing in this area of Surry Hills. The future of Surry Hills remains in the balance to this day.
