Information sessions will soon begin for Canberra’s biggest infrastructure project, light rail to Woden.
Starting from 26 July, the ACT Government will be running a series of face-to-face and community information sessions, with a project team on hand to share information and answer any questions.
Community feedback will also be invited on local priorities and concerns which will help inform the final design, reduce the impacts of construction where possible and maximise the local benefits of the light rail.
The construction of light rail to Woden is part of the ACT Government’s $14 billion Infrastructure Plan that will support thousands of local jobs and Canberra’s economic recovery.
The first stage of light rail to Woden is extending the light rail network by 1.7 kilometres from the city to Commonwealth Park and adding three new stops at Edinburgh Avenue, City South and Commonwealth Park.
To enable the future of light rail construction, early works will be undertaken until mid-2022. While early works take place, the ACT Government is continuing to develop the light rail to Woden project design and prepare the project documentation.
Community information sessions
* Monday 26 July 4:00pm to 7:00pm - Theo Notaras Multicultural Centre, 180 London Circuit, Canberra City
* Monday 2 August 4:00pm to 7:00pm - QT Canberra 1 London Circuit, Canberra City
Virtual community information sessions
The team will also host virtual community information sessions from mid-August. Participants can join the session remotely in real time with the project team on hand to answer any questions you may have. We will update you when these are being held.
All in-person sessions will be coordinated in accordance with ACT Government’s COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines.
