Light rail stage one construction by Canberra Metro is well underway, with tracks being laid and the depot in Mitchell approaching completion. In the ACT Legislative Assembly on Thursday 14th Sep, Transport Minister Meegan Fitzharris MLA read out a list of Canberra companies that are helping to build light rail stage one. She advised the Assembly that:
- 58% of the contracts for stage one have been let to Canberra owned companies.
- Of the 137 local contracts, they are shared between 114 local companies.
That is a great result for a project where one of the objectives was to grow local expertise in building light rail.
