New light rail services set to begin early next year will connect UNSW event venue The Roundhouse with Sydney’s CBD.
Sydney Light Rail has begun tram testing, with passenger services to begin operating from Kingsford to the CBD in March 2020, connecting the Roundhouse directly to the city.
The light rail stop on Anzac Parade is on the venue’s doorstep and will see services to and from the CBD every eight minutes.
“The service will open up new opportunities for us to attract clients who traditionally preference city-based venues due to their convenience,” said Jason Lyons, head of venue and events at the Roundhouse.
“With our proximity to the airport, extensive bus services to UNSW and the new light rail service, we’re more accessible than ever.”
Robyn Johnson, CEO of Meeting & Events Australia (MEA), said the new light rail to the UNSW will give event organisers confidence in hosting their events at the Roundhouse.
“The venue will be quick and easy to access and there will be a curiosity factor when it is opened to the public,” she said. “MEA is looking forward to holding an event at the Roundhouse for the industry to sample the new renovated venue and the new mode of transport when the light rail opens in March 2020.”
