Pyrmont light rail project

Sydney will soon enter a new era of public transport with the introduction of a light rail service to operate between Central Railway and Wattle Street, Pyrmont. The Ultimo-Pyrmont Light Rail Project is a joint initiative by the private and public sector. The capital cost will be met jointly by the Federal Government's Building Better Cities Program and the Sydney Light Rail Company. SLRC will build, own and operate the line under an agreement with the State Government for 30 years after which the asset reverts to the ownership of the NSW Government. The light rail project is an essential ingredient in the urban renewal programme for the Pyrmont area and will commence operation in 1997. This paper describes the Project, explains the company structure, its financing and operating plan that underpins the commitment to a new high quality passenger transport system and the return of light rail to Sydney after 35 years.
