Quote from: Barry Drive on December 12, 2020, 10:21:12 AMConstruction of the Mitchell Light Rail stop has commenced, with the stop expected to be operational by "second half of 2021".For the two weeks 10 - 23 January, free rail replacement buses will operate between EPIC & Racecourse and the Gungahlin terminal. Rumour is that these services will be operated by QCity/CDC, and the double-decker may be used.
Quote from: triumph on January 03, 2021, 04:43:02 PMGiven that it was said "provision is being made" for the future stop during stage 1 construction, that it is reported that much of the stop structure is being prefabricated off site, and site access is made easy by a 2 week shut down for intensive work, am I the only one who thinks opening in the second half of 2021 represents a inordinately long construction time?

Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on January 18, 2021, 04:44:59 AMOf course they weren't, it's not ACTION anymore.
Quote from: ajw373 on January 18, 2021, 06:26:41 PMAction still very much exists. They are the operator of buses in Canberra. In essence they operate buses on "contract" to Transport Canberra.
Quote from: triumph on January 19, 2021, 12:26:10 AMInteresting. Had a skim through TCCS Annual Report 2019-2020. There is a reference to ACTION on page 112 and at Page 208 there is a reference to 'former ACTION'. From what I noticed it seems there is now an entity within TCCS called Transport Canberra Operations which has absorbed ACTION. I don't think the substance of my earlier comment has changed.

Quote from: Toyota Camry on January 21, 2021, 08:48:54 PMIt was observed at Gungahlin Place whilst boarding my maxi taxi to Ngunnawal at 4:40pm this afternoon a bus that was signed as 'Hunter Valley Buses' above the drivers window; however below the drivers window, it was signed 'as Hillsbus Seven Hills'. I have located a gazetted suburb named 'Seven Hills, New South Wales'; this is in the local government area of Blacktown City, which has been declared a COVID-19 hotspot by the ACT Government, from which entry to the ACT is not permitted unless an exemption has been granted.Questions need to be answered by the ACT Government and also ACT Policing as to why not only this vehicle was granted access to the ACT, but also why it has been allowed to operate a public passenger service. It would be recommended that anybody who has traveled on this vehicle should attend a COVID-19 testing clinic.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on January 28, 2021, 01:04:31 PMWas hoping to catch the Coastal Liner yesterday, till I found out when I got there that the LRs are back to normal. I thought "surely the stop isn't finished yet" and it isn't. Why are the LRs back if the stop isn't yet finished?
Quote from: triumph on September 16, 2021, 12:07:45 PMAn item in the TV news yesterday stated that the new Sandford Street stop in Mitchell has been put into use.
Quote from: Busnerd on September 16, 2021, 05:27:12 PMIt opened on Monday 13th I believe. It also would appear the services that used to finish at Well Station Drive after peak hour will now continue to Sandford Street before returning to the depot which makes sense.
