The broom has been pushed through the office of senior public servants overseeing Sydney's troubled $2.1 billion light rail line, resulting in the departure of the project's director, Andy Summers.
As part of an overhaul of roles at the state's main transport agency, five of those in the top eight leadership roles at the Sydney light rail delivery office have exited their positions.
An internal email to staff on Monday shows two of the senior managers in the delivery office have been replaced by public servants in acting positions, while the role of director of project operations remains vacant.
Mr Summers, a former senior executive at engineering company UGL, has been replaced as head of the light rail delivery office by Stephen Pascall, who oversaw Sydney's $1.8 billion South West Rail Link.
Set up three years ago, the standalone office is responsible for delivering the 12-kilometre line between Circular Quay and Randwick and Kingsford in the south-east.
