Bordeaux light rail

SIMON Corbell has pushed forward plans for an expansion of the ACT light rail network.

“The master plan project will explore options for a potential future citywide light rail network that will seek to maximise the significant social, economic and environmental opportunities that light rail transport can provide to cities,” Simon said.

The consulting firms Arup, CBRE, Tract, Brown Consulting and Purdon Associates have been appointed to figure it all out.

Potential destinations proposed by Simon are:

  • Russell,
  • Canberra Airport,
  • the Parliamentary Triangle,
  • Kingston,
  • Woden,
  • Erindale,
  • Tuggeranong,
  • Belconnen,
  • Kippax,
  • Lanyon,
  • Weston Creek
  • Molonglo
