Stage 1 of Parramatta Light Rail is now full steam ahead after planning approval from the NSW Government was received for the project.

Planning approval follows extensive consultation with the community, local businesses and valued stakeholders including Westmead Hospital, the Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Western Sydney University, the City of Parramatta Council, Western Sydney Business Chamber and the Parramatta Chamber of Commerce.

Stage 1 of Parramatta Light Rail will link Westmead to Carlingford via Parramatta CBD and Camellia, connecting key destinations including the Westmead Precinct, the new Western Sydney Stadium, the new Powerhouse Museum and three Western Sydney University campuses as well as communities at Camellia and Telopea.

Associated road, traffic and remediation works for the Parramatta Light Rail will take place later this year, with major construction to begin in 2019. The light rail will begin services in 2023.
