Recycled materials to be used for Parramatta light rail line

11 May 20 Recycled components will provide approximately 30% of the track required along a new 12km light rail route in New South Wales, Australia.

More than 15,000m of single rail, 13,650 rail sleepers, 13,000m of overhead wires and the track ballast from the closed T6 Carlingford Rail Line will be recycled and reused to construct the new Parramatta Light Rail.

The recovered components are in good condition for reuse. A statement said that this will mean using fewer resources and will create better time efficiencies, better environmental results and a more sustainable outcome for the community.

On 5th January 2020, the single-track T6 Carlingford Rail Line permanently closed for the construction and conversion of the dual-track Parramatta Light Rail.
