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.

Parramatta Light Rail progress

Stage 1 track installation

Construction of Stage 1 of the Parramatta Light Rail is underway, with track installation complete across the 12-kilometre alignment from Westmead to Carlingford.

Shared Path

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 path runs parallel to the light rail corridor between Carlingford to Camellia and extends across the James Ruse Drive bridge to Tramway Avenue. The shared path will soon be available to the public.
