Out of hours notice for closure at Northbourne Ave/Alinga St 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 replacement of old paving around Alinga Street Terminus. These works are required at night and over the weekend to reduce impact on city traffic a well as the bus network.

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

Traffic Management and Detours:

Access for traffic on Alinga Street to cross Northbourne Ave in a East/West bound direction will be closed. There will also be some lane reductions for North and South flowing traffic.


Additional Information:

The equipment to be used includes: light vehicles, light towers, vacuum trucks, road saws and concreting equipment as well as equipment required for repaving the area

The project team will ensure the number of machines operating at the same time is limited and equipment turned off when not in use. Non-tonal reversing beepers will be used, and workers will be instructed to keep noise to a minimum. 


These works are designed to transform Canberra, making it more accessible and to provide greater commuter connectivity across an integrated public transport network. We appreciate the continued patience of the public and the support of the Canberra community as we carry out these works.
