City of Parramatta Council has called for Stage 2 of the Parramatta Light Rail to go ahead following recent media reports suggesting the project is in doubt.

The second stage of the Parramatta Light Rail project is crucial for the City of Parramatta as it will play a significant role in connecting the City's newer neighbourhoods to the CBD. It will also link these suburbs with key public transport hubs, including future Metro stations.

Extending from the Parramatta CBD to Sydney Olympic Park, Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 is expected to connect developing suburbs such as Ermington, Melrose Park and Wentworth Point.

(Back to top)

The NSW Government announced the preferred route for Stage 2 of Parramatta Light Rail linking Sydney Olympic Park and Wentworth Point with Rydalmere, and the Parramatta CBD.

The service will provide a much-needed public transport link to support the future growth of the Parramatta Local Government area.

The nine kilometre preferred route will extend from Carter Street, Lidcombe through Sydney Olympic Park and Wentworth Point before crossing the Parramatta River to Melrose Park, Ermington, and Rydalmere.

Stage 2 is proposed to have 10-12 stops with travel times of around 25 minutes from Olympic Park to Camellia and a further eight minutes to the Parramatta CBD.

Stage 2 will be further developed and informed by consultation with the community and stakeholders.

A final business case will be prepared with an investment decision and details on the timing and construction to follow in late 2018.
