Project scope

ACT Light Rail Stage Two is a light rail (tram) project that will run from the Canberra CBD to Woden via the Parliamentary Triangle.
The line will be 10.7 kilometres long, with 12 new stops along the route.

Due to the significant planning approval process required to construct light rail through the Parliamentary Triangle, Stage Two has been split into Stage 2A and Stage 2B. This project page relates to Stage 2B:

Stage 2B: Commonwealth Park to Woden (9 kilometres), including:

  • nine light rail stops
  • a new bridge over Lake Burley Griffin
  • new bridges over intersecting roadways
  • new pedestrian bridges, and
  • wire-free running (no overhead wires) through the Parliamentary Triangle

 


 

Procurement

It is expected that contract negotiation will be undertaken with Canberra Metro, the builder and operator of Light Rail Stage One.

 


 

Project History

Jul 2019: Planning approval for Stage Two is split in two to better deal with complex planning approval through the Parliamentary Triangle.
