City to Gungahlin – Stage One
The City to Gungahlin corridor is an important part of the Transport for Canberra policy, which maps out ways to deliver faster, more convenient and more sustainable transport options for Canberra over the next 20 years.
Light rail will run from City to Gungahlin, along Northbourne Avenue and Flemington Road. It will deliver high quality, reliable and frequent public transport down one of Canberra’s busiest corridors.
12 km route, 6-minute peak service, 10-15 minute off peak, 13 stops, 14 light rail vehicles, 24 minute journey time, same level boarding at all stops, 2 dedicated wheelchair spaces, bikes on board and capacity of more than 200 people.
