The Parramatta Light Rail is one of the NSW Government’s latest major infrastructure projects being delivered to serve a growing Sydney. 

Light rail will create new communities, connect great places and help both locals and visitors move around and explore what the region has to offer. 

Stage 1 of the Parramatta Light Rail will connect Westmead to Carlingford via the Parramatta CBD and Camellia with a two-way track spanning 12 kilometres, and is expected to open in 2024.  

Planning and development work is underway for Stage 2 of the Parramatta Light Rail, which will connect Stage 1 and Parramatta's CBD to Sydney Olympic Park via Camellia, Ermington, Melrose Park and Wentworth Point.
