    Key Details

    The CBD South East Light Rail line spans 12kms from Circular Quay to Sydney’s south eastern suburbs. A tunnel underneath Moore Park and a bridge over the Eastern Distributor roadway will facilitate access to Randwick, Kensington and Kingsford. Light rail redefines travel through the city, decongesting key routes in the CBD and linking up with important locations such as the sporting and entertainment facilities in Moore Park and Randwick, along with the University of NSW, TAFE and hospital precincts. The project design has increased pedestrian space through the creation of a pedestrian boulevard in the CBD and pocket parks in Surry Hills.

    Benefits

    • The CBD South East Light Rail will run every four minutes in peak hours in the CBD and every eight minutes to and from Randwick and Kingsford. Each service will carry up to 450 passengers, equivalent to nine standard buses.
    • Light rail will significantly improve access to major sporting and entertainment facilities at Moore Park and Randwick as well as to the University of NSW, TAFE and hospital precincts.
