First step towards naming the CBD and South East Light Rail stops

13 March 2017

Transport for NSW today unveiled potential names for the 19 stops along the CBD and South East Light Rail route.

The list of draft names will be taken to councils, businesses and other key stakeholders for initial consultation next week before broader community consultation starts later in the year.

Coordinator General Marg Prendergast said engaging the whole community would be a key step in finalising stop names for the project.

“The stop names for the CBD and South East Light rail are important because they will be the first step in how customers navigate this new public transport system,” said Ms Prendergast.

“The key to getting it right when it comes to naming is talking to and hearing from local businesses, residents, Councils – people and groups who have the best understanding of their communities.

“These draft names released today are our proposals, but we will be listening to stakeholders and working with the NSW Geographical Names Board to make sure we get it right.”

Following this initial consultation with key stakeholders, Transport for NSW will put forward its preferred stop name list to the Geographical Names Board who will lead a formal consultation and technical assessment process later in 2017.

The CBD and South East Light Rail will transform public transport in Sydney with reliable turn up and go services every four minutes between Circular Quay to Randwick and Kingsford via Moore Park and Central.
