An Open Invite - Light Rail Construction Update - 22 March 2017

Canberra’s first stage of Light Rail is coming and construction is well underway with the Northern Corridor from EPIC to Gungahlin a hive of activity.

The construction of the Light Rail terminus at Hibberson St is a major milestone for the Light Rail Project. At completion it will transform Hibberson St as we know it, creating a shared pedestrian and light rail zone from Kate Crace St to Gungahlin Place.

The Canberra Metro team has made significant progress in construction along Flemington Rd between Manning Clark Rd and Kate Crace St, and is now looking to begin works in Hibberson St.  As a result Hibberson St will be closing permanently to vehicular traffic from Monday 10 April 2017.

To help you learn more about the permanent road closure, current and future construction along the corridor we would like to invite you to come and meet representatives from our team.

DATE: Wednesday, 22 March

WHERE: Gungahlin Lakes Club - 110 Gundaroo Drive, Nicholls

TIME: 5:30pm to 7pm


Light refreshments will be available

Representatives will also be present from the ACT Government to discuss impacts from the construction of the new bus interchange in Gungahlin Place, along with the overall impacts on ACTION buses.  

If you are unable to attend but would like to discuss the project, please call Canberra Metro’s Information Line on 1300  208 824 or email
