Submission: Light Rail: City to Woden

Publication date: 
January 2021

In this submission to the Light Rail: City to Woden consultation, ACTCOSS called on the ACT Government to build a flexible and responsive transport system that addresses the needs of Canberrans who face disadvantage or vulnerability.

Canberra’s overall transport strategy must ensure that all Canberrans, including older people, people with disability, shift workers, people on low incomes and people with other complex needs can access a flexible, appropriate and safe transport system.

The submission also notes that the light rail expansion will come at a significant cost to the ACT Budget and called for greater transparency on the cost and opportunity cost of the project.
