TO: The Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly
This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that the light rail stage 2 alignment from Gungahlin to Woden (via Barton) does not provide a direct, fast service for residents from the south of Canberra.

The alignment is different to the network publicised prior to the 2016 election which provided a direct alignment from the south to the City and a different alignment servicing the Parliamentary Triangle, Manuka, Kingston and Fyshwick.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to call on the Government to:

• Ensure public transport travel times are maintained for residents living in Canberra’s south, should a light rail from Woden to the City be built.
• Commit to a direct alignment (using the west side of State Circle to link Adelaide Avenue to Commonwealth Avenue) and extension of the track to Mawson.
• Provide for express services by reserving room in the corridor for a future third track.
