Sydney light rail construction has undergone yet another delay, this time at workers found human remains while digging.

The workers were digging out the front of Central Station when they found bones which could have been there for more than 200 years.

Police were called and work on the $2.1 billion project grinded to a halt.

The site once belonged to the Devonshire Street Cemetary which was consecrated in 1820 so the discovery is not being treated as suspicious.

There are concerns that this discovery will further delay completion of the already controversial project.
