Only cross the Light Rail tracks at designated crossings!

Always look both ways before crossing the tracks at intersections and crossings. LRVs can approach from either direction and at any time.

Wait for the green walk signal before crossing the tracks at signalised crossings.

Pay attention and stay alert at all times around light rail – LRVs can move quickly and quietly. Earphones, and other distractions like reading, texting, taking photos or selfies can put you at risk.

Take care not to let the wheels of prams or wheelchairs get stuck in the track.

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.
