Light rail taking shape in Westmead

30 July 2020

Major construction on the Parramatta Light Rail has started in the Westmead Health Precinct to provide crucial access to one of Australia’s largest health, education and research hubs.

The Parramatta Light Rail will provide ‘turn-up-and-go’ services seven days a week, linking Westmead customers to rail, bus, ferries, and the future Sydney Metro West.

Upcoming work includes removing the road surface, replacing underground utilities and rebuilding the road.

The $2.4 billion Parramatta Light Rail will connect Westmead to Carlingford via the Parramatta CBD and Camellia, and is set to open in 2023.
