The preferred route for a new light rail line in Parramatta, New South Wales, has been unveiled.

Phase phase of the route will be 12km long and include stops in Westmead, Parramatta, Camellia and Carlingford.

Transport for NSW has highlighted 16 potential stop locations. These will be finalised following a public consultation.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said: “This is a project that will not just connect major parts of Greater Parramatta but also revitalise communities and help create new ones.

“We’ve done the important planning work and are pleased we can unveil the preferred route and proposed stops, which we will now refine in consultation with the community.”

The second phase of the line will extend it from Camellia to Strathfield via Sydney Olympic Park. Transport for NSW said planning for this stretch will be completed by the end of the year.
