Construction

Construction of stage one light rail from Gungahlin to the City has begun. We are currently in the early stages of construction, which includes relocating essential utilities and services from the centre of the median to the outside of the median or the verges. This work also involves Canberra Metro crews removing trees along the corridor as part of the tree removal program. As construction moves forward, Canberrans will see crews move into the median and intersections to conduct excavation work in preparation for the laying of track later in the year.

You can stay up to date with the latest construction activities for stage one of the light rail project by following Transport Canberra service updates, by subscribing to our weekly light rail construction update or by browsing previous updates.
