The Parramatta Light Rail is one of the NSW Government’s latest major infrastructure projects being delivered to serve a growing Sydney.

Light rail will create new communities, connect great places and help both locals and visitors move around and explore what the region has to offer.

Stage 1 of the Parramatta Light Rail will connect Westmead to Carlingford via the Parramatta CBD and Camellia with a two-way track spanning 12 kilometres, and is expected to open in 2024. The route will link Parramatta’s CBD and train station to the Westmead Health Precinct, Cumberland Precinct, CommBank Stadium, the Camellia Town Centre, the largest museum in NSW Powerhouse Parramatta, the private and social housing redevelopment at Telopea, Rosehill Gardens Racecourse and three Western Sydney University campuses.

To find out more, visit Westmead to Carlingford.

Planning and development work is underway for Stage 2 of the Parramatta Light Rail, which will connect Stage 1 and Parramatta's CBD to Sydney Olympic Park via Camellia, Ermington, Melrose Park and Wentworth Point. It will link communities north and south of the Parramatta River directly to the Parramatta CBD, the Camellia Town Centre, as well as the booming sport, entertainment, education and employment hub at Sydney Olympic Park, and to the Carter Street Precinct.

To find out more, visit Parramatta CBD to Sydney Olympic Park.


New shared path open

The new shared walking and bicycle riding path from Carlingford to Tramway Avenue in Parramatta is now open.

Spanning 5.7 kilometres, the shared path is a public area designated for the use of walking and bicycle riding. It can be identified by signs and/or pavement markings showing a pedestrian and a bike.

The shared path starts at Boundary Road, Carlingford and runs alongside the Parramatta Light Rail alignment to Tramway Avenue in Parramatta. The path also travels over the new shared active and light rail bridge, Bidgee Bidgee Bridge in Rosehill.

Remember to plan your trip: check for any changed access and travel conditions here.
