EOI opens for Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 infrastructure

The NSW Government is inviting infrastructure organisations to help shape and build the next stage of one of the state’s major transport projects, the Parramatta Light Rail.

Minister for Transport, Veterans and Western Sydney, David Elliott said it was very encouraging to see industry experts from not only across Australia but internationally, register their interest to be part of the procurement process for the delivery of such a transformative infrastructure project.

“We’ve seen strong interest from industry leaders excited to design and construct the first phase of Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2, the new 320-metre-long public and active transport bridge over the Parramatta River between Wentworth Point and Melrose Park,” Mr Elliott said.

“Many of those shortlisted industry organisations will now be invited to participate in the Expressions of Interest (EOI) process for the enabling works package, which includes the delivery of the bridge and approaches on either side of the river – totalling 1.3 kilometres, with construction expected to start in 2024, subject to planning approvals.”

The EOI process will close on Tuesday 14 March 2023. Find out more about the Parramatta Light Rail project.
