I'd really like to see an Airport to Belconnen route. Will complement the new airport nicely.

Hopefully Labor wins the election and keeps this project going. If the Liberal party wins, they have promised to tear up the contract and stop the project altogether.

Population growth and the tram: If you don’t build it, they’re still coming regardless

As one of the richest cities in the world, a much bigger question than "can Canberra afford a tram?[...]

Labor has won the ACT election, therefore the light rail project will go ahead ( with an extension south to Woden)
A victory for public transport (in a city designed for cars) !

Actually Walter Burley Griffin's design for Canberra, dating back to 1912, included trams. Since then somehow the city got caught up in the automobile age. The new tram will run along one of the avenues designed for trams by Burley Griffin.

That isn't actually quite right. The tram line in the original plans was a little to the east of Northborne Ave along what is Mort or Lonsdale Streets. Northborne Ave wasn't where it was designed to go.

But in 2016 Canberra a good place for it that is for sure.
