Parramatta. Light rail proposal

Parramatta City Council has developed a concept for a Western Sydney light rail/metro network and has applied to the federal government’s Liveable Cities Program for funding to undertake a two-part feasibility study. “When you consider that within the next 20 years, the majority of Sydney’s population will be in the west, we need solutions that recognise the growth of labour markets outside of the city CBD. A light rail or metro system is a viable option for Western Sydney. It is more reliable than buses, cheaper and quicker to implement than heavy rail and can facilitate faster, more regular services,” Parramatta Lord Mayor Lorraine Wearne, said
