Sydney CBD and South East Light Rail

This project by Transport for NSW (TfNSW) has registered for a Design v1.1 IS Rating.


A new light rail line extending 12 kilometres from Circular Quay along George Street to Central Station, then to Kingsford via Anzac Parade and Randwick via Alison Road. The line will provide space for 300 commuters on each 45 metre long light rail service – equivalent to five standard length buses reducing crowding and congestion.

“Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) is committed to integrating sustainability into the development of the CBD and South East Light Rail (CSELR) project. The CBD and South East Light Rail project is expected to deliver environmental and social benefits worth $308 million including reductions in air and noise pollution, a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and increased levels of active travel. TfNSW recognises the importance of the IS rating tool. The IS rating scheme provides the opportunity to benchmark sustainability performance against other infrastructure projects and facilitates thorough stakeholder engagement to ensure a project has a positive impact on local communities.”
