Could the Liverpool City Council be considering introducing trams to Liverpool?
According to the Liverpool Leader
, the Liverpool Council is supportive of the idea to bring light rail to western Sydney, by backing the Parramatta Council in its call to the state government to bring light rail out to the west.
The Parramatta Council has suggested that a 169km light rail network be built, with the first stage of the network running from Castle Hill to Bankstown and a second stage of the project including a line travelling along the Northwest and Liverpool T-Ways.
A lot of people in Liverpool tend to rely on using their car to travel around, so a light rail option may help reduce car use in the region (and help ease road congestion) or at least help accommodate our growing population.
It may be a while before any plans for light rail in western Sydney come to fruition, but as chances of a Parramatta to Epping Rail Link (PERL) seem to be no longer on the cards, the Parramatta Council believes that a light rail option may be a more suitable option to help meet the growing transport needs of western Sydney.
I’m interested to hear what Liverpool residents think about proposal to bring light rail to the area – would you support it?
