HASSELL to design Sydney’s light rail future

In a significant change to Sydney's public transport landscape, the New South Wales Government has committed to delivering light rail from Randwick and Kingsford through the heart of the CBD to Circular Quay to reduce urban congestion.

HASSELL, together with Arup and Aurecon, are the engineering, light rail systems and urban design team commissioned by Transport for NSW to deliver this exciting new project.

The design challenge is to create a transport system befitting Australia's global city, integrating the physical infrastructure into existing urban areas of distinctive character and significant heritage value to establish a sensitive and high-quality public domain.
