About CBD and South East Light Rail

The CBD and South East Light Rail is a new light rail network for Sydney, with the first passenger services starting on the L2 Randwick Line between Circular Quay and Randwick on 14 December.

 

Tram testing and driver training is well underway on the L3 Kingsford Line between Circular Quay and Juniors Kingsford with passenger services due to commence in March 2020.

 

The 12km route will feature 19 stops, extending from Circular Quay along George Street to Central Station, through Surry Hills to Moore Park, then to Kensington and Kingsford via Anzac Parade and Randwick via Alison Road and High Street.

 

Sydney Light Rail plays a key role in enabling Sydney’s transport future by transporting thousands of customers between Sydney’s Inner West suburbs and Central, and between the CBD and Randwick or Kingsford in the South Eastern suburbs. The Sydney Light Rail network incorporates:

 

  • The Inner West Light Rail network, currently operating in both directions as L1 Dulwich Hill Line between Central Station and Dulwich Hill in Sydney’s West;


  • The CBD & South East Light Rail network, comprising of:

    • L2 Randwick Line running in both directions between Circular Quay and Randwick via Central Station (opening 14 December 2019); and

    • L3 Kingsford Line operating in both directions between Circular Quay and Juniors Kingsford via Central Station (opening March 2020).

 

A combined bus and light rail network will significantly improve public transport access to major sporting and entertainment facilities at Moore Park and Randwick along with the University of NSW, TAFE and health precincts. Additional light rail services will provide extra capacity for major events.
