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.
