Light Rail Vehicle Progress
Our first Light Rail Vehicle (LRV) has left Spain, and will arrive in Canberra in mid-December. Chief Minster Andrew Barr just visited the Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles (CAF) factory in Zaragoza to inspect the first LRV before shipment.

Artwork on our Light Rail
Light rail passengers will be able to enjoy artwork by two talented local artists, Aboriginal elder Uncle Jimmy Williams and emerging artist Hannah Quinlivan.
Uncle Jimmy Williams' artwork will feature on the seat fabric on-board each LRV and on newly acquired Transport Canberra buses.
His artwork has been selected based on aesthetics, the ability to 'transcribe' into other mediums and importance to the traditional custodians of our land. The entire artwork depicts the flight of the bogong moth, an insect that is culturally significant to the local Ngunnawal People.
Hannah Quinlivan's artwork will feature on the glazed screens at each platform.
The award winning artwork was chosen based on the artist's passion for creating works that reflect Canberra's landscape. The continuous pattern which represents human movement in the landscape of Canberra will bring a unique look to each stop. View Hannah's artwork.
