About Sydney Light Rail

The CBD and South East Light Rail is a new light rail network for Sydney, currently under construction. 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. Civil construction will be progressively completed across the majority of construction zones, with testing along the Randwick section of the network already underway.


Sydney Light Rail also incorporates the Inner West Light Rail, which is now operating as the L1 Dulwich Hill Line. The 12.7km route connects Central Station and Dulwich Hill via 23 light rail stops and transports more than 9.7 million customers each year.


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. To plan a trip visit  Transport Info.

Key features

  • High frequency ‘turn up and go’ light rail services operating up to every four minutes in the peak.
  • Reliable and high-capacity services.
  • Additional special event services between Central and the Moore Park and Royal Randwick stops.


Small Business Assistance Program

The Small Business Assistance Program assists small businesses on the light rail alignment who believe they have been impacted where construction is taking longer than initially advised.
