WIN TV Canberra carried an item on their TV news on February 5 2015 with a scoop - that the ACT Government was to announce the extension of the Capital Metro route to Russell. WIN TV journalist David Sharaz reports that the announcement is expected in the coming week.
While there has been no further reporting in the media, it is a route that has long been discussed. Capital Metro has modelled a route extension from Civic, along Constitution Avenue, terminating near the statue in the centre of Russell.
If we hear of anything substantiating WIN TV's scoop - we will report it here and on our Facebook page.
