Parramatta Light Rail

Parramatta Light Rail

Parramatta Light Rail is being delivered to serve a growing Sydney, and will create new communities, connect great places and help both locals and visitors move around and explore what the region has to offer.

The Parramatta Light Rail will connect the Parramatta CBD to the Westmead Precinct, new Bankwest Stadium, the new Powerhouse Museum and cultural precinct on the Parramatta River, the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse and three Western Sydney University campuses at Westmead, Parramatta and Rydalmere. It will also traverse the Cumberland Precinct, the Camellia Town Centre and the private and social housing redevelopment at Telopea.

What’s new?

  • High-frequency ‘turn-up-and-go’ light rail services seven days a week, departing approximately every 7.5 minutes in peak periods.
  • Modern and comfortable air-conditioned vehicles,
  • 45 metres long, driver-operated and integrated with the Opal card network.
  • Two new light rail and pedestrian zones along Church and Macquarie Streets in the Parramatta CBD.
  • The Parramatta Light Rail will replace the train line between Camellia and Carlingford.
  • A new active transport link (walking and bike-riding path) between Carlingford and Parramatta.

Construction of the Parramatta Light Rail is underway and expected to continue until 2023, when the service will begin operating.
