Light Rail proposed route and selection of alignment and stop locations

COMMENTS ON THE PROPOSED STAGE 2 ROUTE AND IMPLICATIONS OF DESIGN

The proposed Stage 2 extension of Canberra’s Light Rail system, from the City to Woden, will be a key addition to implementing an integrated transport solution for the City.

CBC commends the proposal and makes the following submission in response to the request from Government on feedback of design and route options for Stage 2:

CBC’s preferred proposed Route is 2b.

Encompassing Barton in the route embeds the value of the light rail transport system as more than simply a commuter route. It reinforces the benefits to the City of tourism, as the cultural institution precinct and hotels in Barton are made accessible through the proposed route, giving visitors to the city enhanced ease and capacity to move across the city. This  route also provides greater access for workers to office buildings in Barton- a highly populated workforce area. READ FULL SUBMISSION HERE
