Extend Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 from Carter Street (Olympic Park) to Lidcombe Station via John Street (as proposed by Cumberland Council) and Strathfield Station (via Parramatta Road)

EcoTransit proposals for Lidcombe - Pippita - Olympic Park - StrathfieldTo the Speaker, Members of the Legislative Assembly, the Member for Parramatta Donna Davis, the Member for Auburn Lynda Voltz, the Member for Strathfield Jason Li, and NSW Minister for Transport/Member for Summer Hill Jo Haylen.

The petition of EcoTransit for Greater Parramatta – Olympic Park Precinct, Cumberland/Auburn, Strathfield, and the Inner West.

Brings to the attention of the House the truncation of the Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 route alignment at Carter St with the absence of service between Olympic Park to Lidcombe and Strathfield.

The undersigned petitioners therefore ask the Legislative Assembly to extend the Parramatta Light Rail Stage 2 to Lidcombe Station and Strathfield Station, and also guarantee that the Sydney Trains T7 Olympic Park Line will have heavy rail capacity for the introduction of Pippita CityExpress.

EcoTransit also calls for the permanent reintroduction of City to Liverpool (and Bankstown) via Regents Park services on the Sydney Trains' T2 and T3 lines.
