Names Proposed for Light Rail Stops

The Geographical Names Board has revealed the names they’ve proposed for the six new light rail stops.

The proposed names are:

  • Newcastle Interchange Light Rail Stop
  • Honeysuckle Light Rail Stop
  • Civic Light Rail Stop
  • Crown Street Light Rail Stop
  • Queens Wharf Light Rail Stop
  • Newcastle Beach Light Rail Stop

Residents are now being encouraged to provide feedback on the names.

Submissions can be lodged on the Geographical Names Board’s website at

Feedback must be lodged by 6th August.

It follows confirmation that a large part of Hunter Street is set to re-open to traffic by the end of the month.

The light rail construction fences will come down between Union and Darby Streets, freeing up more than 100 residential and business parking spaces.

Revitalising Newcastle Director, Michael Cassel says an information and education campaign will be launched soon to teach motorists and pedestrians how to share the road with trams.
