The Light Rail construction in the CBD is being blamed for the closure of another Newcastle business.
The owners of the Tuff N Up Boxing Gym in Beresford Street, Newcastle West have posted a photo of a notice of Facebook advising customers they've been forced to close after 20 years.
Owner, Peter Hallett has told NBN News the loss of parking has caused a 70 percent drop in business.
"We've decided we've had to call it a day because it's just no longer financially viable due to the parking and the construction that's going on," he said.
