NSW Government encourages industry to register interest for the first phase of Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2, linking Wentworth Point and Melrose Park with a new bridge.

This will be the first significant bridge crossing over the Parramatta River since 1987.

The NSW Government has committed $602.4 million to commence the detailed planning process to move ahead with the Western Sydney megaproject. 

Stage 2 of the Parramatta Light Rail will connect Stage 1 and Parramatta’s CBD to Sydney Olympic Park via Camellia, Rydalmere, Ermington, Melrose Park and Wentworth Point. It will connect the local communities in the Greater Parramatta and Olympic Peninsula and bring the vision of a ‘30-minute city’ closer to reality. 

Works will include a 320-metre-long bridge and approaches on either side of the river – totalling 1.3 kilometres. It will connect growing communities and unlock access to the Sydney Olympic Park peninsula and its world-class sporting, recreational and economic facilities.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for our industry partners to learn more about the project and work with us to deliver innovative and reliable transport connections,” says Minister for Transport and Western Sydney David Elliot. 

Interested parties are encouraged to visit the link here to find out more and register their interest.

Following this, an Expressions of Interest process will open in January 2023 for shortlisted industry partners, with the construction of the Enabling Works expected to commence in 2024.
