NSW Government has officially announced that the L2 Light Rail line from Circular Quay to Randwick will open on 14 December.
UNSW staff, students and visitors will be able to board the light rail at the UNSW High St light rail stop.
Light rail is one of the most significant pieces of infrastructure to support the University in its 70-year history.
The L2 Randwick Line is the first of the two light rail lines to UNSW. It includes 14 stops: between Circular Quay and Randwick, running through the CBD, Central, Surry Hills, Moore Park, UNSW and ending at the Randwick Hospitals Campus on High Street, Randwick.
When the L3 Kingsford Line opens, in March 2020, there will be five more stops between Moore Park and Kingsford at Nine Ways.
Together with the existing L1 Dulwich Hill Line, these new lines form an integrated 24.7 kilometre network of high capacity, energy efficient light rail services.
