Have your say on CBD and South East Light Rail stop names8 August 2017
The Geographical Names Board (GNB) is now inviting public feedback on names for the 19 stops along the CBD and South East Light Rail route.
In March, Transport for NSW unveiled potential names for the stops. Following initial consultation with councils, businesses and other key stakeholders, Transport for NSW put forward its preferred stop name list to the GNB.
The GNB met in July to consider the names for the light rail stops and is now leading the formal consultation and technical assessment process.
All interested parties should lodge their feedback before Monday 11 September via the Geographical Names Board website.
Coordinator General Marg Prendergast said this was an exciting milestone for the project and encouraged the community to get involved.
“The stop names for the CBD and South East Light will be the first step in how customers navigate the new public transport system so it’s important we get it right,” Ms Prendergast said.
“Local people and groups have the best understanding of their communities and their involvement will help ensure each stop name reflects the identity of the area. I would encourage anyone interested to visit the GNB website and have their say.”
The recommended light rail stop names are:
- Circular Quay
- Bridge Street
- Town Hall
- Central Chalmers Street
- Surry Hills
- Moore Park
- Royal Randwick
- Wansey Road
- UNSW High Street
- Randwick Junction
- ES Marks
- UNSW Anzac Parade
- Nine Ways
Public consultation opens today and will close on Monday 11 September. Following this the GNB will review any feedback received.
Written submissions can be lodged with the Secretary, Geographical Names Board, 346 Panorama Ave, Bathurst, NSW, 2795.
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. Services will begin operating in 2019.
