In a first for North South Wales, one kilometre of ‘green track’ will form a key attraction of the Parramatta Light Rail that will connect Westmead to Carlingford via Parramatta Central Business District. Minister for Transport Andrew Constance said the first piece of green track, which involves planting grass or low plants between and beside light rail tracks, has been laid in Rosehill as part of a 12-month prototype testing process.

Green track will feature in the Cumberland Hospital heritage precinct, Robin Thomas Reserve and Tramway Avenue, creating up to one kilometre of landscaped light rail.

The 12-metre long prototypes will trial two different grasses to test their growth rate and durability, as well as experiment with soil layers and depths.
