Sydney increases commitment to light rail

Councillors in Sydney have committed AU$220m (£151m) to the New South Wales government’s new light rail project.

The 12km light rail scheme is designed to transform the Australian city. Earlier this month, minister for transport Gladys Berejiklian I had asked for an increase in the council’s contribution to light rail from AU$180m to AU$40m.

“I’ve been overwhelmed by the support for the project from key stakeholders, who recognise the benefits it will bring to Sydney in terms of relieving congestion and supporting major health, education, sporting, business and cultural precincts,” she said.

Light rail forms part of an integrated transport solution to fix congestion in the CBD which includes a redesigned bus network and train improvements.
