Western Sydney locals and stakeholders are invited to have their say on the Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 preferred route and 15 stop locations from Camellia to Sydney Olympic Park, as the Business Case for the project nears completion.
Minister for Transport and Veterans David Elliott said the early engagement was part of the project’s ongoing planning work which feeds into the design, Environmental Impact Statement and Final Business Case.
“We want to ensure Stage 2 of the Parramatta Light Rail meets the transport needs of the rapidly growing and diverse residential, business and entertainment hub in Western Sydney,” Mr Elliott said.
Minister for Corrections and Member for Parramatta Geoff Lee said this was a key opportunity for the community to have their say.
“This process ensures community feedback is considered before the formal Environmental Impact Statement process occurs.
“Site investigation work, including the mapping of utilities such as water mains, electricity and gas, and geotechnical investigations begins Monday and will form part of the Final Business Case,” Mr Lee said.
The new map confirms the preferred Stage 2 route will travel south of the Parramatta River through Camellia, which will support up to 10,000 new homes and 14,500 jobs in the proposed Camellia-Rosehill Precinct, before crossing the river to Rydalmere.
The consultation period is open from Monday 2 May to Sunday 26 June 2022. Visit the Stage 2 Parramatta Light Rail Virtual Engagement Room to access the ‘Have your say’ survey.
