Light rail set to transform Hibberson Street

Big change is coming to Gungahlin town centre with construction transforming public transport and connecting Gungahlin to the city centre.

The Canberra Metro team has made significant progress in construction along Flemington Road between Manning Clarke Crescent and Kate Crace Street and is looking to begin works in Hibberson Street. As a result, Hibberson Street will be closing permanently to vehicular traffic from Monday 10 April 2017.

The ACT Government will also begin construction in April for the new bus interchange for Gungahlin town centre. The works are anticipated to be completed in December 2017.

Transport Canberra have developed the following maps to illustrate the road closures throughout this period and to help residents navigate through the town centre.

From Monday 10 April 2017, Transport Canberra bus services will be required to divert outside of Hibberson Street. More details will be provided in the coming weeks.

Construction in Gungahlin town centre will be completed in three stages. Indicative dates for the stages are outlined in the maps below.
