Airport asks for light rail connection

By johnboy 24 September 2013 41

The ABC has special news that Canberra Airport’s Stephen Byron is drawing up plans for the ACT Government to build a light rail line to his holdings:

The ACT Government is planning to build light rail from Gungahlin to the city centre along Northbourne Avenue.

But Canberra Airport managing director Stephen Byron says planning should start now on how the line can be extended to loop national attractions in the Parliamentary Triangle and connect to the international terminal.

“Having more of a network would make the Gungahlin to City line more viable,” he said.

“It would link up the major employment zones – the city, the airport, Russel, Parkes – and link them up with where people live.

They’ve made a shiny video (above), and opened up their very own public consultation.

It really makes one wonder why we bother with local government when the airport is doing all this work for us.

From the goodness of their hearts no doubt.

Are you seriously suggesting Majura Parkway, for example, has had the same number and depth of feasibility studies as the light rail project? I think not.


What is the point of making statements that can be disproved by anyone with half a brain in under 15 seconds?
