CBD and South East Light Rail
Light rail will play a central role in the future of transport in Sydney. It is a high capacity, reliable and sustainable mode of public transport that will ease the pressure on Sydney’s roads by reducing the city’s reliance on buses.
In 2012 the NSW Government began the extension of the Inner West Light Rail line and announced the CBD and South East Light Rail project.
The Inner West Light Rail was completed in March this year and together with the CBD and South East Light Rail, these light rail lines will form the new Sydney Light Rail network, with reliable, high capacity services running north from Central to Circular Quay along George Street, west to Pyrmont and Dulwich Hill, and south east through Surry Hills to Moore Park, Randwick and Kingsford.
Contracts for the CBD South East Light Rail project were signed in December 2014. Preparatory works to map the location of services and prepare the route for construction are already underway. The project is now entering a detailed final design stage before major construction works begin. Businesses and the public will be given significant advance notice of major works in any area.
