The PTCBR are holding a public meeting on 8 Aug 2018 with TCCS presenting on Network 19, Light Rail Stage One and Two. It is a good opportunity for PTCBR Members and the public to ask questions about major public transport issues in Canberra.
The 8 Rapid Bus routes to be introduced in mid 2018 received a thumbs up from PTCBR. TCCS Minister Meegan Fitzharris today announced that in 2018 Canberra would have nine rapid transit routes. Eight would be rapid bus, and one would be light rail. The announcement was made at the opening of the new $4 million dollar Dickson bus interchange, directly across the road from the Dickson light rail stop on Northbourne Avenue.
Colliers International is a multinational property sales and management operation with a strong presence in commercial property in Canberra. Earlier this month they released a report based on a survey of commercial property owners about Canberras Light Rail project. Although the survey size is small, it is focussed on a specific demographic that shapes how the corridor will grow. Their views are very useful for the current project, and in planning communications strategies for future stages of the light rail network In Canberra.
