Light rail will play a central role in the future of transport in Sydney. It is a high capacity, reliable and sustainable mode of public transport that will ease the pressure on Sydney’s roads by reducing the city’s reliance on buses.
The contract to design, construct, operate and maintain the CBD and South East Light Rail project was signed in December 2014. Preparatory works to map the location of services and prepare the route for construction are already underway. The project is now entering a detailed final design stage before major construction works begin. Businesses and the public will be given significant advance notice of major works in any area.
These light rail lines will form the new Sydney Light Rail network, with reliable, high capacity services running north from Central to Circular Quay along George Street through the CBD, west to Pyrmont and Dulwich Hill, and south east to Kingsford and Randwick via Surry Hills, Moore Park and Kensington.
