About Parramatta Connect
The $2.4 billion Parramatta Light Rail will connect Westmead to Carlingford via the Parramatta CBD and Camellia with a 12-kilometre, two-way light rail track. Parramatta Connect (CPB Contractors and Downer EDI Joint Venture) has been engaged by Transport for NSW to complete the construction of the light rail track, roadworks, stop platforms, and transport interchanges at Westmead, Parramatta CBD and Carlingford. Upon its completion the light rail will transport 28,000 people every day to key destinations, new communities and essential services. It is expected to open in 2023.
For Parramatta Connect, excellence in sustainability management is integral to the way we work. We will strive to deliver new benchmarks for sustainability in the transport infrastructure sector. Parramatta Connect believes that a successful future for our business depends on sustainability of the environments, communities and economies in which we operate.
Parramatta Connect undertakes procurement to generate economic, environmental and social benefits beyond the goods and services required. We will strive to achieve value for money on a whole life basis in terms of generating benefits not only to the organisation, but also to society and the economy, with a neutral or positive impact to the environment. This includes issues such as: organisation governance; human rights; environmental impact; consumer rights; community support; fair and ethical operation.
