Parramatta Light Rail is one of the NSW Government’s major public transport projects, part of a record $89.7 billion infrastructure investment across the state.
Stage 1 of Parramatta Light Rail will connect Westmead to Carlingford via the Parramatta CBD and Camellia.
In preparation for construction to start, project Infrastructure Works Contractors CPB Contractors and Downer Joint Venture will be undertaking geotechnical activities and underground services exploration along the Stage 1 corridor from Westmead to Carlingford.
Investigation works from 22 March 2019 will involve:
- digging holes in the road using saw cutting, jackhammering and excavating for underground utility investigation (high levels of noise)
- drilling for soil sampling for geotechnical testing
- investigating identified heritage and archaeological sites
- reinstating footpath and road surfaces for safe access
What to Expect
Project contractors will be in contact directly with business and residents adjacent during February to ensure potential locations and durations of works are understood, including night work impacts.
