Keeping our growing city moving


Keeping our growing city moving

The ACT Government is making the investments our growing city needs to cut congestion and help Canberrans move around quickly, conveniently and with less impact on our environment.

Through the 2018 Budget, we are continuing to invest in a city-wide integrated public transport system for Canberra, with new investment in Light Rail Stage Two to Woden. We are also investing more in our roads network, with intersection upgrades in our suburbs and new roads infrastructure linking up our growing regions.

A city-wide integrated public transport network for Canberra

The ACT Government is building an integrated public transport network that will change the way Canberrans move around our city. Along with our significant investment in Light Rail Stage One and our expansion of the rapid bus network, this Budget will also deliver:

The ACT Government will also continue to purchase new, cleaner buses for our expanded rapid network as our city continues to grow.

Better, safer roads

This Budget will invest more in our roads network to deliver better, safer roads. This includes:

The Government will also provide matched funding of up to $100 million to upgrade the Monaro Highway after the Commonwealth Government commitment in this year’s Federal Budget. We welcome this investment in Canberra’s road network and will provide appropriate matched funding once the project is scoped and agreed.

These new investments in Canberra’s public transport and road networks will help keep our city moving as we grow.
