Held in Sydney, Light Rail 2021 brought together operators, manufacturers, contractors and industry and government stakeholders of every level across the light rail sector to hear cutting-edge case studies, project updates and learn from successful projects in Australasia and the world. Light rail is reshaping the Australasian landscape by reducing traffic congestion and greenhouse emissions and transforming the way we travel by offering smart solutions and completing multimodal connections. With transport planning refining our cities and regions, now it is the time to build a long-term, strategic light rail future that benefits all.
