In October 2017, the NSW Government announced the preferred route for Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2, which will connect to Stage 1 and run north of the Parramatta River through the rapidly developing suburbs of Ermington, Melrose Park and Wentworth Point to Sydney Olympic Park, providing a new public transport option to this booming sport, entertainment and employment hub. An option for extending east through Camellia before crossing the Parramatta River to Rydalmere is being considered. Stage 2 will be further developed through consultation with the community and stakeholders. A Final Business Case for Stage 2 is expected to be completed in 2018, with an investment decision and details on the timing of construction to follow.
