a look at Canberra' s International tou
Airport terminal today. The final made
touches to the fit out are being fr
made, with flights set to take off from the Capital in just sixty days. CONSTRUCTION SITE

The finishing touches
being made to the terminal

- before Canberra opens
its airport gates to

international visitors.

And here's the first
glimpse - WIN News taking

a tour through the
new fit out today.

We always set ourselves
the ambition of building

one of the best small
airports in the world and

obviously having
the highest quality

international airport
is a real priority.

The terminal will boast
a business-style transit

lounge for all passengers.

And this space will host
an array of duty free


It's an extension of
the domestic airport -

designed to make it easier
for passengers to board

their connecting flights.

The terminal is also the
first to accommodate the

merger between Customs and
Quarantine operations -

now known as
Boarder Force.

Where they're sharing
search rooms, offices, not

only with those agencies
but with the Department of

Agriculture dealing with
the quarantine issues.

While it's still very much
a construction site in two

months from today these
halls will be flooded with

international visitors
direct from Singapore.

To start there'll be
four flights weekly.

And it's hoped that will
soon increase to one each

carrier to get on board

number will increase as

of the Capital Metro light rail co
project. It comes following public opti
consultation, with the preferred before
option expected to be selected before the ACT Election. Where to next?

The Government looking
into the future expansion

of the light rail network.

The Canberra community has
identified four key routes

- that's Woden to the
City, the Parliamentary

Triangle, Belconnen and
of course the airport.

The Planning Minister and
Transport Minister today

unveiling the result of
community consultation

into stage two of
Canberra's controversial

light rail project.

The minister says which
of the proposed rail

corridors will be built
following the completion

of stage one will be
announced before the

October election - with
contracts to be signed in

the next term
of Government.

We won't be building all
four at once - as we've

done stage one as the
most congested route from

Gungahlin to the City,
Stage two will be looking

at congestion, will
be looking at economic

opportunity for land value
uplift, and patronage as

well as the routes
chosen in these four

circumstances by
the Canberra public.

The Transport Minister
says the Government wants

construction of the second
stage to flow directly on

from the first stage.

We know that there is an
industry developing, there

are over one hundred
people employed in

building the light rail
network, there will be

people employed over the

life of the project -
we want to maintain that


The opposition says it
is still opposed to the

project, with concerns
patronage on stage one

won't justify the costs.

But the government says
Light Rail will increase

public transport user
numbers across the ACT.

If we can have that
comparable shift onto

public transport that
we see during the school

holidays that means our
roads are less congested -

that means public
transport is better used.

sure they'll get a great

take on the Highlanders at

Good to see all the

there the better for us.
