Despite the NSW infrastructure advisory body warning that the state should consider delaying the procurement and construction of large new infrastructure projects, until current megaprojects advance, The Parramatta Light Rail is set to continue.
The NSW Government said it has committed $602.4 million to start works and commence a detailed planning process to proceed with Parramatta Light Rail Stage Two.
NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet said the ‘vital piece of infrastructure will support the growth of Western Sydney, while linking to another enormous project… the Sydney Metro West.’
It is the Greater Sydney Commission’s vision to transform Greater Sydney into a metropolis of 3 cities by 2040. The Light Rail project aims to help locals and visitors move around and explore what the Parramatta region has to offer.
Stage 1 is set to open in 2023. It will connect Westmead to Carlingford via the Parramatta CBD and Camellia with a 2-way track spanning 12km.
