Light rail construction is gearing up and moving along at a very efficient rate. Now that the schedule and works are clearer, if you have any questions about the effect of construction, please contact the Light Rail Business Link Program.
The Light Rail Business Link Program acts as a liaison between business, the ACT Government and Canberra Metro to help identify measures to minimise impact. This might include ideas and support for marketing initiatives, development of signage, or helping organise timing to ensure the best outcome for all.
One upcoming stage that will require a cooperative approach between all stakeholders is the planned closure of Hibberson Street in Gungahlin. Hibberson Street is the current termination point for light rail, making this a vital branch of the network.
It is currently anticipated that Hibberson Street from Kate Crace Street to Gungahlin Place will be permanently closed to vehicles from Monday 10th April 2017. Businesses in Gungahlin Town Centre are being invited to attend a meeting with Canberra Metro, the ACT Government and the Light Rail Business Link Program to discuss anticipated disruptions and proposals to assist businesses.
“Our goal is to help businesses adapt throughout the construction process so that they are able to reap the benefits light rail will offer once it is running past their front doors,” Light Rail Business Link Program Manager, Lisa Morisset explained. “If there are any local businesses with concerns about immediate business impacts due to light rail construction, please get in touch – sooner rather than later.”
To contact the Light Rail Business Link Program call Lisa on 6247 4199 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
