Community feedback is essential to ensure we deliver a high quality light rail network that meets the needs of users.
During each stage of the project, we’ve engaged with the community and business stakeholders.
- Light Rail Integration Study: October to November 2013.
- Early design consultation: Over 16,500 interactions from June to August 2014.
- Project briefing: To local industry in September 2014.
- Urban design consultation: Over 13,000 interactions from January to February 2015.
- Environmental Impact Statement: July and August 2015.
- Light Rail Network: Almost 2,000 responses in November 2015.
- Construction compounds in the city precinct: With business stakeholders in the Sydney and Melbourne buildings.
- Public Transport Survey: Almost 3,000 responses were received from May to June 2016.
- City to Woden light rail consultation: Over 4,700 responses via Your Say from May to June 2017.
Community feedback has also been sought by the:
- Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate (EPSDD) of the ACT Government
- National Capital Authority (NCA).
During Light Rail construction, a range of community forums and information stalls have been held by Canberra Metro, supported by Transport Canberra Light Rail, to provide opportunities for the community to ask questions and provide feedback on the project and future service operation.
These information and engagement sessions have been held in Gungahlin, Dickson and City precincts across a range of community events and locations such as The Canberra Show, Downer Shops, Alinga Street and Senior Citizens Week.
