Our Light Rail is here.
Are you Rail Ready?

Other things you should know about Light Rail.

LRVs take longer to come to a stop than road vehicles and cannot swerve to avoid contact.

LRVs are wider than the tracks. Stay well clear as they approach and leave them plenty of room.

The tracks are smooth and in wet weather the rail surface at intersections may be slippery.

Light rail vehicles have priority as they approach intersections and crossings. Please be alert and obey all traffic signals and signs.

The overhead wire is LIVE and carries 750 volts of power. Keep away!

Before commencing work in and around the light rail corridor, contact CMET at permits@cmet.com.au

In the event of an emergency, dial 000.

Some new signs will be installed to remind you about safety.Find out more

ACT Policing's Constable Kenny Koala program

This program is designed to educate child care and primary-aged school children on a range of safety themes, including traffic and road safety. The program is aligned with the Australian Curriculum. Canberra Metro is working in collaboration with the program in relation to light rail safety. Schools are encouraged to book a traffic and road safety presentation by Constable Kenny Koala. Whilst this will not be a specific presentation about the light rail, light rail safety will be underscored.
