Canberra Metro / Re: Light Rail Stage 1 Construction

There also seemed to be some (more) track rectification work outside the depot.

Drove past the depot yesterday arvo and some serious re-work going in there, must be taking advantage of the lull in testing for a few days. They had what seemed to be big tents, or at the least a big fence with white plastic on it around the track outside the depot and just inside, with a lot of concrete dust going everywhere.

Not sure what is wrong with that area but it seems like the concrete has been reworked everyday now for the past 6 months. Lots of (minor) concrete work going on between the depot and Gungahlin too.

Also pleasing to see the final layer of road surface going down on flemmington road between the waste transfer station and Well Station Drive. Not sure why they didn't start that at the Lysaght Road intersection as the whole stretch from there needs doing. As well as south the depot and again to the Federal Highway.

Also noticed a few stops now have the ticket machines installed.

Not sure this service would be very popular, except to those who think they're too good to travel by bus but also don't want to fork out for a flight.

434 now in AOA for CIT.

329 and 398 now in AOAs for AllHomes.

443 still wrapped in the Bunker Shelter exhibition AOA as of today, too.

May be slightly off topic (as far as the ACT is concerned), but State Transit have wrapped 2569ST, one of their Scania K280UB/Custom CB80 buses (the one with the trial orange LED Hanover desto, funnily enough), in a livery rather similar to 379/400, except with "Ride with Pride" as the slogan down the side. I suspect it *may* mean 400 might not be making a trip to Sydney this year (for Mardi Gras, anyway).

Apparently the ARTBUS has changed hands, so with the program has being extended, the ARTBUS is now on University Avenue close to the ANU School of Music.
