Sydney light rail: Inner West extension study: final report

The NSW Government's Metropolitan Transport Plan (MTP) incorporates extension of the light rail system to the CBD and the Inner West. Following the announcement of the MTP in February 2010, NSW Transport and Infrastructure (NSWTI), in partnership with the Barangaroo Delivery Authority and local Councils, engaged GHD to undertake the Sydney Light Rail Extension Study. This report is the first part of the study, focusing on the Inner West extension from Lilyfield to Dulwich Hill. The aims of the Inner West extension of the Sydney light rail system are summarised as follows: 1. Extend the existing light rail service from Lilyfield to Dulwich Hill by capitalising on the opportunity provided by the disused railway line; 2. Establish stops in locations that optimise access to the light rail line and urban renewal along the line; and 3. Endeavour to realise the aims of the GreenWay proposal1 where it does not adversely impact on the operation of the light rail system. The preliminary assessment of the feasibility of the proposed Inner West Extension has indicated that there are no major barriers to the further development and realisation of the project, although a number of key issues have been identified, as summarised in this report.
