The ACT Government is seeking public input to an important preliminary design study for the Capital Metro light rail project, Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, Simon Corbell, announced today.
Mr Corbell said the Light Rail Integration Study would look at issues associated with integrating the light rail corridor from Gungahlin to the City with the broader public transport network, as well as the requirements of intermodal stations and stops along the route.
“The Light Rail Integration Study is an essential piece of work that will inform the detailed design of the Capital Metro Project,” he said.

“It is part of the suite of preliminary design studies that are now being undertaken as a priority for the new Capital Metro Agency.”
The first stage of the Light Rail Integration Study will identify and evaluate options for:
— Integrating light rail with the ACTION bus network, and the pedestrian and bicycle path networks;
— Bike and ride locations, kiss and ride locations (drop off points) and park and ride locations; and
— Preferred light rail stop locations to optimise accessibility and integration.
