The new L3 Kingsford Light Rail Line along Anzac Parade opened today, Friday 3 April 2020.
The L3 Line, which operates between Circular Quay and Kingsford, adds five new stops to the existing alignment, including the UNSW Anzac Parade Stop, which is conveniently located at the lower campus entrance to UNSW on Anzac Parade.
During what is a challenging time for the UNSW community due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University has welcomed the State Government’s launch of the new Light Rail Line.
UNSW President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ian Jacobs said that the Light Rail will play a vital role in improving campus accessibility for students, staff and visitors when the University community is able to reconnect.
“I thank the NSW Government for completing this project to better connect the Kingsford and Randwick community with the city,” he said.
“The commencement of this extension to the Light Rail means the people of UNSW and our neighbours have a modern and environmentally-friendly transport option to support essential travel. It will also be a welcome way to help us reconnect with family and friends once we get through this very difficult time.”
As one of the key stakeholders of the Light Rail project, this fantastic outcome honours years of consultation between UNSW and Transport for NSW and is testament to the dedication of the UNSW community to bring a modern transport solution to the University.

There are 15 stops on the L3 line between Circular Quay and Juniors Kingsford.
The five new stops on the Kingsford Branch Line, from Moore Park, include:

- UNSW Anzac Parade on Anzac Parade in front of UNSW

With the Light Rail servicing more of the University Kensington campus, it is important for students and staff to be aware of their surroundings.
