Contact Us: VIA POST Po Box 50 Mitchell ACT 2911 ON THE INTERNET website: WWW.ACTLIGHTRAIL.INFO email: INFO@ACTLIGHTRAIL.INFO ----- The following are the guiding principles of ACT Light Rail: We believe that Light Rail is the best form of mass transit public transport for the Capital Region. We believe that integration of Light Rail with the ACTION bus network and other bus systems is the most efficient, attractive and sustainable public transport system for Capital Region residents. We believe that the Capital Region already has the population to support a viable Light Rail network. We believe that the establishment of Light Rail is essentially a political challenge for Canberra and that detailed planning, technical, financial and operational issues can be dealt with once the political issues around Light Rail are resolved. We believe that we should work collaboratively with other public transport stakeholders and promote wide community and business involvement, contribution and debate in support of Light Rail. We believe that there should be a detailed, unbiased and realistic feasibility study into the establishment of Light Rail in the Capital Region. We believe that one or both of the ACT or Federal governments should fund a detailed feasibility study to establish viable routes for a Capital Region Light Rail network including proper triple bottom line assessment. We believe that a proof of concept Light Rail line should be built before construction of a wider network, which links employment areas and town centres. We believe that consideration should be given to leveraging existing infrastructure and development opportunities to assist in this process.
