Posted 30 Sep 2016
Parramatta Light Rail staff talked to the community, showed artist's impressions and draft route maps


Members of the Parramatta Light Rail project team visited Westmead Hospital, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and Westmead Private Hospital recently to discuss the proposed rail network. The team, answered questions from staff, patients and visitors about the $1 billion project.

“The pop-up event was a fantastic opportunity for the team to be at Westmead talking to visitors and staff about this exciting project. The feedback we received from staff and the community was valuable in helping influence work currently underway to finalise the light rail route which will be announced in early 2017,” Parramatta Light Rail Project Director Tim Poole said.

The Parramatta Light Rail will connect people with jobs across the Greater Parramatta area by linking health and education precincts along a corridor more than 20km long.

The new network will provide opportunities for new community facilities, vibrant public spaces and homes close to transport links and jobs in the Parramatta CBD.
