Background on Parramatta Light Rail

On 8 December 2015, the NSW Premier Mike Baird announced the preferred route for the Parramatta Light Rail project. The spine of the preferred route runs from Westmead to Strathfield via Parramatta CBD, incorporating Camellia and Sydney Olympic Park. A light rail line will also branch to Carlingford, replacing the existing heavy rail shuttle.

The NSW Government is committed to developing the Parramatta Light Rail project as quickly as possible. A project team has been assembled and detailed design work for the preferred network has commenced.

Transport for NSW expects construction to commence in late 2018, subject to planning approval.
