Graham Sibery, Executive Director – Rail Operations & Safety, Public Transport Services, South Australian Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure delivered this presentation at the 2014 Light Rail conference in Melbourne. Across the globe the conception and delivery of light rail projects has been growing at an incredible rate. Seen as an efficient and sustainable way to alleviate the congestion that cripples the expansion of many key urban zones, light rail is fast becoming a central solution in the evolution of Australia's major urban areas. In order to work towards a congestion free future, it is imperative that federal and state governments support light rail projects.

Light Rail 2014 explored all the possible funding options for light rail projects, while also looking at international case studies, the latest rolling stock, braking technology, among many more. For more information about the event, please visit the conference website:

An investigation by SKM for the Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure has calculated additional productivity based benefits associated with the project. The investigation found that there was a close correlation between the tram extension to the City West Precinct just west of the Morphett Street Bridge, and the density of employment along the tram route. Evidence from around the world suggests that increases in employment densities in inner cities, referred to as agglomeration, results in increased productivity due from the closer interaction between businesses. In the case of the tram extension, the SKM work provided an indicative estimate of these productivity benefits being at least $ 85 million (net present value).
