As a part of the ongoing Capital Metro consultation, agency staff will be at the Dickson Shopping Centre tomorrow (12 July) to discuss the proposed design for light rail in Canberra.
Minister for Capital Metro, Simon Corbell, urged Canberrans to visit Dickson to have their say on how they want light rail to look.
“There will be information for you to comment on, learn about and ask questions of agency staff,” Mr Corbell said.
“As this is an early design, no decisions have been made on the final product, so this is the most opportune time to influence the end design.”

The design proposal has been based on in-depth planning and builds on previous community feedback.
“The feedback provided during this consultation will feed into next stages of design, which will provide the basis for expressions of interest later this year.
“It is vital the community take the opportunity to provide their feedback on how they would like the system to look and operate.
“Light Rail will deliver so much more than a transport benefit for Canberra and this is why the government has been so intent on planning for Canberra’s future. We are committed to delivering city-changing infrastructure and look forward to hearing what the community have to say about these great designs.”
Capital Metro will be at the Dickson Shopping Centre, near Woolworths, between 9.30am and 1.30pm. In case of bad weather, the team will be in the Dickson Library.
