ACT Light Rail have no preference for the location of light rail routes, believing that to be the domain of transport engineers. We are happy to provide speculative routes for consideration.
One possible set of light rail routes is not so speculative, as it was included in the official ACT Government bid to Infrastructure Australia.
Another map which is of great interest is this map which was prepared by a consultant to the ACT Government as part of its Sustainable Transport Plan review in 2009. This map shows a possible network in 2031. I would like to see the routes in red as light rail routes, and the other routes as local bus services.
This map was prepared by an ACT Light Rail member several years ago, and includes a connection to Bungendore and Queanbeyan utilising the existing NSW rail infrastructure, which terminates at the Kingston railway station.
The following map was provided by Darryl Johnson, President of the Tuggeranong Community Council.
Back in the early 2000's a proposal for a limited tram line through Civic using historic tram cars was put forward. The 'Federation Line' proposal would run from the War Memorial to the national Museum via Civic. This proposal was obviously tourism focussed and not a serious public transport solution.
