Surry Hills light rail

The NSW Government has committed to building a $1.6 billion light rail network that is set to transform how we get around our city. The City supports this initiative and has worked in consultation with the NSW Government on the George Street route.

The City also supports light rail servicing the Moore Park stadiums and out to the University of New South Wales. However, Surry Hills residents and businesses have been left out of the process of deciding its route through their neighbourhood, leaving many anxious about potential impacts on their homes, businesses and parks.

More than 450 people attended a public meeting organised by the City at Sydney Boys High to hear NSW Minister for Transport Gladys Berejikilian provide information on the project for the first time.

The City will continue to advocate on behalf of residents and businesses to make sure the NSW Government listens to the affected community, that they address potential problems and impacts, and work on ways to minimise them.
