Sydney Light Rail

Published 5th July, 2019

When the Sydney Light Rail is complete, customers will be able to rely on turn-up-and-go services from the CBD to Randwick and Kingsford.

The light rail will feature 19 stations and extend 12 kilometres from Circular Quay along George Street to Central Station, then to Kingsford via Anzac Parade and Randwick via Alison Road.

From 7am to 7pm, customers will be able to turn-up-and-go every four minutes between the CBD and Moore Park, and every eight minutes between the CDB and Randwick or Kingsford.

The light rail will meet the needs of the community now and into the future through:

  • frequent and reliable services connecting key CBD locations with Surry Hills, Moore Park, Randwick racecourse, the University of NSW and hospitals in Randwick
  • high capacity services, with each vehicle able to carry up to 450 people (equivalent to nine standard buses) and up to 13,500 passengers per hour
  • the creation of a one-kilometre pedestrian zone along George Street, between Hunter and Bathurst streets
  • urban renewal and improvements to amenity, with more than 120 government and private sector projects in planning or under construction along the route.

What are customers saying?

The NSW Government gathers community and business feedback at a mobile information hub, and through forums and reference groups.

Assistance is also available to businesses on the light rail route who believe they have been impacted by construction.

How is the project tracking?

Tram testing from Randwick, past Central Station and along George Street, up to the Town Hall light rail stop has begun.

Customers will be able to travel on trams from Randwick to Circular Quay from December 2019. The Kingsford line will begin operation in March 2020.

With testing now moving into the CBD at night, it’s important to be aware of trams and obey traffic signals. If you’re walking or riding your bike, avoid distractions and cross the tram tracks safely.
