Business forums

The CBD and South East Light Rail will deliver significant economic benefits for Sydney. Constructing the light rail through a busy urban environment will not be without challenges however keeping Sydney open for business during this process is a primary goal of the project team.

Access to businesses and properties will be maintained during construction and operation of the light rail and Transport for NSW is working with businesses to ensure they have the information and support they need to understand and adjust to the changes required during construction.

Business forums have been established across the CBD and South East Light Rail route. There are three business forums:

  • CBD
  • Surry Hills / Moore Park
  • Randwick / Kingsford / Kensington

These forums provide a regular opportunity for businesses to learn more about the project, its potential impacts and how they can best prepare for construction. If you would like to attend the next business forum in your area, please contact Sydney Light Rail by emailing projects@transport.nsw.gov.au or call 1800 684 490.

You will be required to register before attending any of the business forums.
