Have your say on Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2

02 May 2022

Western Sydney locals and stakeholders are invited to have their say on the Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 preferred route and 15 stop locations from Camellia to Sydney Olympic Park from today, Monday 2 May to Sunday 26 June 2022.

The early engagement is part of the project’s ongoing planning work which feeds into the design, Environmental Impact Statement and Final Business Case. This is to ensure that Stage 2 of the Parramatta Light Rail meets the transport needs of the rapidly growing and diverse residential, business and entertainment hub in Western Sydney. It is a key opportunity for the community to have their say, and ensures that feedback is considered before the formal Environmental Impact Statement process occurs.

The new map confirms the preferred Stage 2 route will travel south of the Parramatta River through Camellia, which will support up to 10,000 new homes and 14,500 jobs in the proposed Camellia-Rosehill Precinct, before crossing the river to Rydalmere.

Site investigation work, including the mapping of utilities such as water mains, electricity and gas, and geotechnical investigations, also begins today and will form part of the Final Business Case.

Stage 2 of the Parramatta Light Rail project will connect to the future Metro West and heavy rail in Parramatta and Sydney Olympic Park, and ferry services at Rydalmere and Wentworth Point.

For more information, visit Parramatta CBD to Sydney Olympic Park to find out more about the project or the Stage 2 Parramatta Light Rail Virtual Engagement Room to access the ‘Have your say’ survey.
