Arup picked as advisor for new Sydney light rail
Arup has been appointed to an advisory role for the Parramatta Light Rail project in Sydney, Australia.
The twin-track light rail line will connect the growth areas surrounding Western Sydney’s central business district. Arup is supporting the New South Wales government as infrastructure technical advisor for the project, providing design services.
By 2036, more than half of Sydney’s population will reside in Western Sydney. This shift is pulling the heart of metropolitan Sydney westward and will increase the importance of Parramatta as the region’s centre. Parramatta Light Rail will support that growth.
Arup’s advisory services will provide consultation across all technical disciplines and urban design for the corridor.
“Parramatta Light Rail will activate intra-city accessibility and amenity in a way that other transport modes cannot,” said Arup project manager Ryan Andriessen. “It will also connect local areas and catalyse urban uplift in emerging precincts, while delivering an essential and reliable transport service.”
Construction of Parramatta Light Rail will begin in 2018.
