About CBD and South East Light Rail

The CBD and South East Light Rail is a new light rail network for Sydney, with passenger services now operating on both the L2 Randwick Line and L3 Kingsford Line.


The 12km route features 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; and
    • L3 Kingsford Line operating in both directions between Circular Quay and Juniors Kingsford via Central Station.


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

Website news

With passenger services now up and running on both the L2 Randwick Line and L3 Kingsford Line, the Sydney Light Rail website is winding up.


This website was created to keep the community and stakeholders updated on all the latest construction news and milestones.


Now that the focus has shifted from construction to passenger services and providing customers information about their journey, all the relevant Sydney Light Rail travel information can be found at


Our library, which contains construction notifications and other public documents, will remain accessible for a number of months.


Safety has been our number one priority throughout this project, so we would like to take this opportunity to reinforce our light rail safety message. Please stay alert and be aware of your surroundings, always use designated crossings and avoid distractions like mobile phones. You can find more advice on the light rail safety page.
