Canberra Light Rail Stage 2

Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate (ACT Government)

Strategic Land Use Appraisal

The Canberra Light Rail Stage 2 is a $1.9 billion light rail project that will run from Civic in Canberra to Woden in the southern suburbs, via the Parliamentary Triangle. This would provide an extension to the Canberra Light Rail Stage 1, which runs from the Canberra CBD to Gungahlin in the northern suburbs. The Stage 2 line will be 11 kilometres long with 12 new stops along the route. 

The Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate (EPSDD) undertook strategic investigations to explore land use opportunities along the Stage 2 route. The investigations reviewed the strategic growth needs of Canberra to identify the nature of planning interventions required upon implementation of the Canberra Light Rail Stage 2. 

What we did

Atlas provided property economics, development feasibility and take-up forecast advice as part of broader consultant team investigating potential land uses which could be catalysed by an extension of the Canberra Light Rail to Woden. 

The outcome

Stage 2 of the light rail to Woden is being constructed in two stages – first from the City to Commonwealth Park with the second stage to Woden. The EPSDD is progressing with precinct planning and infrastructure planning and delivery.
