Referred to as Sydney’s second CBD, Parramatta will soon see the progression of plans for its light rail system.

New South Wales Government has set aside $400 million from its major
infrastructure fund, Restart NSW, to accelerate work on the Western
Sydney light rail.

Premier and Minister for Sydney Mike Baird says plans for the light rail system
marks a new chapter in the agenda to reduce congestion.

“We’ve promised to transform this great state and
today’s major commitment for Western Sydney could provide a key missing
transport link and change the way people travel in and around Sydney’s west,”
he says.

The NSW Government will now also explore a number of potential light
rail routes including:

•    Parramatta to Macquarie Park
via Carlingford.

•    Parramatta to Castle Hill via
Old Northern Road.

•    Parramatta to Liverpool via
the T-way.

•    Parramatta to Bankstown.

•    Parramatta to Sydney Olympic

•    Parramatta to Rouse Hill.

•    Parramatta to Ryde via
Victoria Road.

•    Parramatta to Sydney CBD via
Parramatta Road.

•    Parramatta to Macquarie Park
via Eastwood (proposed by Parramatta

•    Parramatta to Castle Hill via
Windsor Road (proposed by Parramatta

Once the initial stage of work to find the best light rail route is
completed, a number of viable options will be taken forward for detailed design
and feasibility.
