Sydney Olympic Park Authority (SOPA) has been working with Transport for NSW to support the proposal to deliver the Paramatta Light Rail Stage 2 which will connect Parramatta to Carter St via Camelia, Ermington, Melrose Park and Sydney Olympic Park. The delivery of the Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 project will be transformational for the Sydney Olympic Park community, providing greater connectivity for residents, businesses and visitors.

SOPA is proposing to enter into a construction licence with Transport for NSW to allow for construction and commissioning of the works outlined in the notification. The areas of the Millennium Parklands that would be subject to the construction licence are part of the Woo-la-ra Landfill known as Triangle Transport Site (see images below).

The current Government funding is for preparation works only.

The proposed works will include a 320m bridge spanning from Melrose across Parramatta River to Wentworth Point as well as a section of dual purpose light rail line through the Millennium Parklands to Hill Road. Any residual lands will be returned for public amenity uses or as planted area.

SOPA would like to invite community feedback on the proposal to grant a construction licence to Transport for NSW for the construction of the enabling works. Feedback will be collated over a 28-day period and SOPA's response will be shared via #mySOP in June 2024.

Please share your feedback below by Friday 31 May 2024.
