Parramatta Light Rail student winner shows sustainable flair

12 December 2018

The use of innovative design and sustainable materials are at the forefront of the winning entry in Transport for NSW’s 2018 Sustainable Design Competition.

Christopher Zeng-Allen from the University of Sydney was awarded top prize for his ‘A Node to Health’ design for an imagined Parramatta Light Rail terminus at Westmead Hospital.

University students were invited to put on their thinking caps and come up with imaginative solutions for a proposed Parramatta Light Rail interchange at Westmead Hospital, including:

  • A new light rail terminus
  • An open space, park or plaza
  • Integrated station development

Parramatta Light Rail was the Transport for NSW project chosen to host the competition this year, as an exploration of the major infrastructure project’s sustainability vision.

Although the winning design is conceptual only and will not be used by the project, Mr Zeng-Allen will have the opportunity to complete a two-week work experience period at Transport for NSW as part of the Parramatta Light Rail Stage 1 project team.
