Parramatta Light Rail Stage 1 Tree Offset Strategy

Feature Projects

Transport for NSW
Parramatta local government area NSW | Darug Country

Parramatta Light Rail (PLR) is one of the NSW Government’s latest major infrastructure projects being delivered to serve a growing Sydney. The PLR will connect Westmead and Parramatta to Carlingford via Camellia. PLR will renew and create new communities, connect key places and help both locals and visitors move around and explore what the area has to offer.

Its Tree Offset Strategy guides the planning and delivery of more than 5,700 new trees in local streets, parks, reserves and the light rail corridor to deliver a greener, more liveable city of Parramatta. Thanks to this Strategy, Parramatta Light Rail is a greening project, helping to meet the Government’s commitment to plant five million trees by 2030, cooling hot streets, providing fauna habitat and transforming the character and amenity of Parramatta, delivering a legacy to be enjoyed by many.
