Sydney Light Rail Extension Constructability Support

The NSW Government will deliver a new, fully integrated light rail route from Circular Quay to Kingsford and Randwick, via George Street in the CBD. The estimated $1.6 billion 12 kilometre light rail project will link Circular Quay and Central via George Street, the Moore Park sporting and entertainment precinct including the Sydney Cricket Ground and Allianz Stadium, Randwick Racecourse, the University of NSW and Prince of Wales Hospital at Randwick.

Our involvement
