John Laing, the active investor in greenfield infrastructure projects, is delighted to announce that the final stage of the Sydney Light Rail has opened to the public.

Officially opened, remotely, by the NSW Government’s Minister for Transport, Andrew Constance, the line completes the 12-km Central Business District (CBD) and South East Light Rail project and runs from Circular Quay to Kingsford.

Residents in Sydney are experiencing similar restrictions to others around the world, and the NSW Government and project partners wanted to ensure the light rail system is fully available to key and essential workers, allowing them quick and safe travel around the city.

“The railway is being opened, importantly, so that those critical workers across our community are able to get to work at this time,” Andrew Constance said, speaking via a video link.

“We are delighted to see the final stage go into operation,” said John Laing Asset Director, James Bramley. “We hope the opening of the final stage will assist essential workers who need to cross the city, and be available for residents, commuters and tourists whenever current measures are lifted.”
