Supporting Business

The CBD and South East Light Rail will build a positive future for businesses with improved connections to commercial, education, hospital, sporting and entertainment precincts. Building major infrastructure in Australia’s busiest city will be challenging but we’re making every effort to minimise the impact on businesses. There will be disruptions along the way, but benefits will be considerable once light rail is in operation.

TRANSPORT FOR NSW LIGHT RAIL ACTIVATION PROGRAM

The Transport for NSW CBD Coordination Office is supporting business through its Light Rail Activation Program, working with retailers along the light rail route.

The Christmas Activation Program, which includes a nine-metre high Christmas tree, is now live on George Street, between King and Market streets. CBD shoppers and pedestrians can enjoy a program of activities in the pop-up retail space outside Dymocks and in the live entertainment area outside Myer until 27 December.
