Canberra LRT launches EoIs

Expressions of Interest (EoIs) are being sought for the delivery of Australia’s Capital Metro light rail scheme through a PPP deal.

The Capital Metro Agency, on behalf of the ACT government, is seeking partners to deliver and operate the Capital Metro light rail project in Canberra.

Valued at $610m, plus a $173m contingency, the project will see the creation of a new 12km line during the first phase, running from the city to the developing suburbs of Gungahlin in the north.

The Capital Metro Agency also published the business case for the project, which claims creating the new line will deliver almost $1bn in benefits to the community. This will include $222m in transport time savings and $140m in infrastructure efficiencies.

Interested parties have until 2pm on 19 December to respond to the EoI.
