NSW Government begins community consultation on Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2. Have your say before 26 June
As part of the business case for Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 (PLR2), the NSW Government is now inviting community feedback on the proposal, including the location of proposed stops.

City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Cr Donna Davis has welcomed plans to seek the community’s input on the preferred route.
“With so many people relying on public transport to get to or from work, school or study, I encourage everyone to provide feedback to the NSW Government and have their voices heard on this vital piece of infrastructure”, Cr Davis said.
The consultation period is open from Monday 2 May to Sunday 26 June 2022. Visit the NSW Government’s Stage 2 Parramatta Light Rail Virtual Engagement Room to access the ‘Have your say’ survey.
Stage 2 of the Parramatta Light Rail project includes 15 stop locations from Camellia to Sydney Olympic Park and will connect to the future Metro West and heavy rail in Parramatta and Sydney Olympic Park, and ferry services at Rydalmere and Wentworth Point.
