Canberra’s light rail project is now at the important detailed design stage – if you have an opinion on the light rail network, now is a critical time to have your say and put your opinions forward as a cyclist. Feedback will help shape the design specifications that will be used in the tender process later this year.
Pedal Power has organised a forum for members to share their views on the light rail project. What do you think is important for cyclists in the design of light rail? How can we encourage more people to cycle through the introduction of light rail? Should bicycles be allowed on the light rail? What should be considered for cyclists as the Northbourne Corridor is redeveloped?
Representatives from across relevant areas of ACT government will be at the forum to hear your views and answer questions.
This is a unique opportunity to voice your opinion and air your views in order to ensure that the Light Rail Project meets your needs.
So please, come along and have your say on Thursday 7 August from 6pm, at the Capital Metro Agency Offices, Telstra House, 490 Northbourne Avenue. Light refreshments will be provided.
Capital Metro is currently consulting widely on the following areas of the design:
– Strategic approach – the policy and planning principles guiding the project.
– Passenger experience – what you can expect as a light rail passenger in Canberra
– Urban design – how the corridor will look and feel with the light rail
– Nuts and bolts – what is being built, its specifications and how it will work
Further information on the consultation can be found at: http://www.capitalmetro.act.gov.au/have-your-say
Detailed design drawings are on display at the Capital Metro pop-up information centre, open Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 5:30pm, throughout the consultation period and will be available at the forum.
