Project status: Open

The ACT Government’s plans for a state-of-the-art Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) campus to be built alongside a new passenger-friendly bus interchange in Woden are progressing.

Feasibility studies, early-concept design development and consultation are currently underway to inform the project’s business case, with project approval to be sought later this year. This significant investment in Woden’s renewal will support job creation, both during construction and once the facility is operational, as well as aid long-term economic growth in the area.

It is anticipated that 6,500 students will use the new campus each year, benefiting from a contemporary educational environment, course offerings suited to jobs of the future, and enhanced connections with local industry.

The proposed bus interchange will integrate with a future light rail terminus, encouraging active travel in the area and
underpinning Woden’s ongoing development as a business, transport and education centre. The project is part of the ACT Government’s $14 billion Infrastructure Plan ensuring Canberra remains one of the world’s most liveable cities as its population grows.

More information about the CIT Campus — Woden project can be found in our latest Project Update.

How to have your say:

Our current focus is our 'Design & Values' survey. As part of the early CIT Campus - Woden project development, we would like to hear your thoughts on what attributes go into the design of a great campus, building and space. Your feedback will assist our project team, including our planners, architects and engineers, to prioritise what is important to community members, local business, future users of the site (such as bus drivers, VET trainers and assessors, and CIT students) and other key stakeholders.

Community input is currently being sought on aspects of the project’s design elements, such as building height and layout, green space ratios, connectivity to local facilities, public transport integration and sustainability features. We are also keen to understand what you as members of the community foresee as the key benefits and opportunities that will arise out of this project, plus things to consider for the future. Have your say by completing the survey before 17 June.

There will also be ongoing opportunity for community input throughout the design and construction of the new CIT Campus — Woden. These opportunities will be announced periodically via this page.

How we will use your views:

Information and feedback from the YourSay website will be collated and provided to the CIT Campus - Woden Project Team.
