The ACT Leg Assembly Committee for planning and transport matters is calling for the government to give more details on light rail and raising London Circuit. More to come, but here are the recommendations.

Thanks @AlexCrowe12 @canberratimes for chance to talk about using 🚲 as a tool to create a better quality of life for all people, regardless of ability. My teacher @teije123 & colleagues stressed we should build for the city we want, not the city we have.

#lightrail is an investment for #CBR future, and the financial arrangements for LRS1 are a successful model for future stages.
