Parramatta Light Rail – Stage 1

Serving a growing Sydney




Parramatta, NSW


Expected 2022

Parramatta Light Rail (PLR) Stage 1 will connect Westmead to Carlingford via Parramatta CBD over a 12km with 16 stops, conversion (and duplication) of the existing Carlingford rail line from heavy rail to light rail and construction of 2 new bridges.

Rail Planning Services were engaged to review and refine the construction method and construction traffic requirements along the entire PLR alignment to enable the definition of the project requirements and interfaces; most notably the Hawkesbury Road works that involved a complex interface with ongoing construction works at the hospital. These construction methods were included within the staging strategy and Scope Performance Requirements.

Our team also assisted in the contract preparation (including associated tender documents) for both the Main and Enabling Works.
