    Light Rail is a key part of the economic and urban transformation of Canberra.

    Canberra's light rail, the ACT Government’s most significant transport infrastructure project, is delivering high quality, reliable and frequent public transport along one of the city’s busiest corridors. 

    It’s an essential element of Canberra’s growing, integrated transport system which is connecting people with employment, social and cultural hubs, reducing congestion and ensuring Canberra continues to be one of Australia’s most livable cities.

    Light rail runs every six minutes in peak times with 13 stops on the 12 kilometre journey, travelling from Gungahlin to the City along Flemington Road, the Federal Highway, and Northbourne Avenue.

    Scope

    Canberra’s Light Rail Stage One has been delivered under a Public Private Partnership between the ACT Government and the Canberra Metro consortium. 
     
    The consortium includes CIMIC Group companies Pacific Partnerships (equity funding and project leadership), CPB Contractors (design and construction) and UGL (operations and maintenance), with partners John Holland, Mitsubishi Corporation, Aberdeen Infrastructure Investments and CAF.
     
    The PPP is for approximately 23 years and includes the construction and operation of Stage One of the light rail network for 20 years. At the end of the contract term, the ACT Government will assume ownership of the light rail network assets.
