Newcastle Light Rail - A city shaping project.

Newcastle Light Rail is a key part of the NSW Government’s $650m program to revitalise the city of Newcastle. It provides a frequent and reliable travel option throughout the City Centre, connecting key precincts, reinvigorating the CBD, and opening urban renewal opportunities. Newcastle Light Rail opened to the public in February 2019, one month ahead of schedule to the excitement of TfNSW and government as a pre-election commitment. It lays the foundation for an expanded light rail network in the Hunter region, and for a
continued renaissance of light rail in Australia.
