CBD & South East Light Rail

The new CBD and South East Light Rail will transform public transport in Sydney, providing high capacity, clean and reliable services. The light rail will extend from Circular Quay along George Street to Central Station, through Surry Hills to Moore Park, then to Randwick and Kingsford via Anzac Parade and Alison Road.


Major construction started on the CBD and South East Light Rail in October 2015. Work is now underway across the Sydney CBD,  Surry Hills, Moore Park, Randwick and Kensington. Major construction will be completed in 2018 and services will start running in 2019.
