Overview

Parramatta Light Rail is one of the NSW Government’s major infrastructure projects being delivered to serve a growing Sydney. Construction of the Stage 1 portion is now complete on all 16 light rail stops along the 12 km alignment from Westmead to Carlingford. Testing and commissioning of light rail vehicles is underway and the depot facility is nearing completion, with opening of the line on target within 2024.

CAF Turnkey & Engineering (T&E) has been working on the project since 2019 as part of the Great River City Rail Light Consortium, made up of CAF Rail Australia and Transdev Australasia. CAF have provided the RTSA with the opportunity to tour the near complete depot facility.
