Barton Highway/Federal Highway intersection closure 5 July - 8 July

With light rail from Gungahlin to the City now operating, there are still minor works to be carried out to complete the light rail corridor and surrounds. This is to ensure Canberra’s light rail system is quality assured now and into the future. Canberra Metro Construction appreciates the patience and support of our community as this activity takes place.

Construction Works:
Out of hours works are required for the installation of tactile paving and concrete kerb works.

The works will be taking place between 8:00pm and 6:00am from Friday 5 July to Monday 8 July
