About Parramatta Light Rail
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 Parramatta CBD and Camellia with a two-way track spanning 12 kilometres. This will be the first stage of the Parramatta Light Rail project and is expected to open in 2023. 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. The route will link Parramatta’s CBD and Train Station to the Westmead Health precinct, Parramatta North Urban Transformation Program, the new Western Sydney Stadium, the Camellia Precinct, the new Powerhouse Museum and Riverside Theatres Cultural Hub, the private and social housing redevelopment at Telopea, Rosehill Gardens Racecourse and three Western Sydney University campuses. Planning work for Stage 2 is being developed in collaboration with Sydney Metro West. An extension from Carlingford to Epping is also being investigated.
