Capital Metro update

As of 1 January 2018, the management of the City Centre Marketing and Improvements Levy transferred from In The City Canberra to the City Renewal Authority. Views expressed in these articles may not reflect the views of the Authority.

On Friday 4 September, the shortlisted consortia will submit their bids for the Capital Metro project. We are hoping that they recommend the first stage extends to Russell and the City Station between the Melbourne and Sydney Buildings is an amazing piazza space. Following this the Capital Metro team will commence a comprehensive and rigorous process of assessing each bid. They hope to have the successful consortium engaged early in 2016.

Over the last month the Capital Metro Place Managers have been meeting with many businesses in both the Gunghalin and City precincts. The place managers have noted that businesses have been very keen to learn about the project, particularly to find out when construction will commence and the opportunities the project offers.

The Capital Metro Place Managers have drop in sessions every week on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 11am – 1pm and 3.00pm – 5.00pm at the Civic Library.
