Parramatta Light Rail Stage 1
The Parramatta Light Rail is one of the NSW Government's latest major infrastructure projects being delivered to serve a growing Sydney. Stage 1 will connect Westmead to Carlingford via the Parramatta CBD and Camellia with a two-way track spanning 12 km. It is expected to open in 2023.
With completed track installation across the 12 km alignment and work on the first light rail stop underway; the Parramatta Light Rail route will link the Parramatta CBD and train station to the Westmead Health Precinct, Cumberland Hospital Precinct, CommBank Stadium, the Camellia Town Centre, Powerhouse Parramatta, Telopea, Rosehill Gardens Racecourse, and three Western Sydney University campuses.
Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2
The NSW Government has committed $602.4 million to proceed with Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 and commenced the detailed planning process to move ahead with this Western Sydney project.
The funding will go towards early works and building the vital bridge connection across the Parramatta River between Wentworth Point and Melrose Park.
Planning and development work is continuing, including utilities and geotechnical investigations across the alignment, as well as progressing the development of the project's Environmental Impact Statement, which will be released for public comment by the end of the year.
