Light Rail to Randwick

This consultation has concluded. This website was operational from 2011 to 2014 as a means to consult the community and show the benefits of light rail in Randwick City. The NSW Government will start construction on the CBD and South East Light Rail project after April 2015. For updates on construction refer to the Sydney Light Rail website: http://www.sydneylightrail.transport.nsw.gov.au/latest/current-works  

Randwick City Council continues to consult the local community about ways to reduce the impact of the construction of light rail in Randwick City. Future consultations will be conducted through our special consultation websitewww.yoursayrandwick.com.au.

    Light rail to Randwick is happening!

    Randwick City Council has worked hard to bring light rail to Randwick. The State Government has given formal planning approval for the project to commence in mid 2015 and be completed in 2019 or 2020. (Read the Minister's media release 4 June 2014). 

    Light rail will bring considerable benefits and create more than 500 construction jobs and support the growth of more than 4,000 jobs in education, health and research in Randwick City. Its construction will deliver a new, modern transport solution to service 42,000 UNSW students, 13,200 hospital and uni workers, 11,000 resident commuters, 7,000 TAFE students, 400,000 race-goers and millions more people who go to concerts, events and sporting matches at the sporting stadiums and Centennial Parklands. 

    We welcome light rail, but it will have a big impact on Randwick City. Many parking spaces will be lost, particularly around Anzac Parade and Kingsford and it will result in traffic changes and disruption.

    To reduce the impact of light rail, Randwick Council released a light rail support plan on 17 April 2014 and this plan was endorsed by Council at its meeting on 29 April 2014. You can read more about the $68M support plan in our news section and download the supporting documents in the library.

    HAVE YOUR SAY - KINGSFORD MULTI-STOREY CAR PARK

    This survey is now closed. We wanted to know what you think about Council’s plans to acquire land on Rainbow Street in Kingsford next to the Kingsford 9-ways roundabout to create a multi-storey car park. Is car parking important to you and would this help local businesses and residents affected by light rail? 

    A copy of the report on this consultation survey is now in the document library.
