I was in the room for the Capital Metro Industry Briefing at the National Convention Centre this morning when Simon Corbell, Capital Metro Agency Minister, announced that the business case for Capital Metro had been endorsed by Cabinet, and the project approved.
Total cost – 783 million dollars.
Construction will begin in 2016 with service expected to begin in 2019/20.
EOI’s will be called for on 31 October, when the full business case will also be released.
This is such wonderful news for the future of Canberra.
