The ACT Light Rail project will deliver a light rail line in Canberra running from Gungahlin in the north to Woden in the south, passing through Canberra’s CBD.

The project currently comprises of two stages:
Stage 1 – City to Gungahlin
Stage 2 – City to Woden

Construction has commenced on Stage 1, while planning for Stage 2 will start in 2017.

Stage 1 involves the construction of a 12 kilometre light rail line from Canberra CBD to Gungahlin in the city's north, along Northbourne Avenue and Flemington Road.

There will be 13 tram stops along the route, with light rail services running every 6 minutes during peak hours and every 15 minutes in non-peak periods.
The project is being delivered as an availability-based Public Private Partnership (PPP).

In May 2016, Canberra Metro, a consortium comprising Pacific Partnerships, John Holland, Mitsubishi, Aberdeen Infrastructure Investments, CPB Contractors, Deutsche Bahn International, CAF and the Bank of Tokyo - Mitsubishi UFJ (BTMU), secured a contract for the design, construction, finance and 20 year operation and maintenance of the light rail in May 2016.

ACT Light Rail Stage 2 will extend the light rail line from Canberra CBD south to Woden, via the Parliamentary Triangle. This will provide an extension to Stage 1 which runs from Canberra CBD to Gungahlin in the city's north, along Northbourne Avenue and Flemington Road.

The preferred route for the project was announced by the ACT Government in September 2016.
