Sydney's Light Rail Future

Sydney’s Light Rail Future is the NSW Government’s plan to reduce congestion and revitalise Sydney. It was released 13 December 2012.

Sydney’s Light Rail Future is an integral part of the NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan. It reflects the feedback we received from thousands of people interested in seeing improvements to light rail services in Sydney through comments made on the draft NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan and Discussion Paper.

We have also engaged with transport experts who have provided invaluable input into the process.

Sydney’s Light Rail Future covers four key stages:

  • Service integration and improvements
  • Modernise and extend the existing network with the Inner West Light Rail extension
  • Deliver a new CBD and South East light rail service
  • Longer term investigations

Implementation of Sydney’s Light Rail Future will see a light rail line built through the Sydney CBD to Randwick and Kingsford to link Circular Quay and Central via George Street, the Moore Park sporting and entertainment precinct including the Sydney Cricket Ground and Allianz Stadium, Randwick Racecourse, the University of NSW and Prince of Wales Hospital at Randwick.
