ACT Light Rail will be holding a public meeting from 6.30 PM on Thursday 4 September at the Belconnen Community Centre, Swanson Court, Belconnen.
This meeting will discuss the recent announcement by the Chief Minister of a business case for Light rail in the ACT.
This is the first concrete step by the Stanhope Government in preparing a proper case for Light Rail and is supported by ACT Light Rail. The government has listened to our comments that a wishlist including light rail is not sufficient for Infrastructure Australia fund to make a considered decision, and announced this recent initiative.
Our aim now, is to provide the ACT Government with items we believe should be included in the terms of reference for this business case. ACT Light Rail has worked constructively with all political parties in successfully including Light Rail on political platforms for the territory election.
I encourage all citizens of the ACT with an interest in public transport to attend this meeting and put forward their suggestions for Light Rail (with an emphasis on realistic achievable recommendations) which can be included in the terms of reference for the business case.
If you are unable to attend the meeting you can visit the ACT Light Rail website and leave a comment or suggestion which may be considered. We ask that your real name and contact details be provided if you choose to do this, so we can contact you if necessary.
This is a good opportunity for the community to have input into a major infrastructure proposal.
