The ACT Government has called for qualified construction companies to tender for stage one of the Belconnen to City Transitway Project.


Interested companies will have until 19 January 2012 to submit their best bid under the tender process currently being conducted by the Territory Government.


"The Belconnen to City corridor is one of the busiest bus commuter routes in Canberra connecting people to Civic as well as the University of Canberra, CIT Bruce Campus, Calvary Hospital and the Australian National University," Chief Minister Katy Gallagher said.


"Due to commence in early-2012, the first stage of work will include a continuous dedicated bus lane on Barry Drive from Clunies Ross Street through to Kingsley Street in the City; a new major bus station at City West integrated with the new ANU Exchange development; on and off-road cycling facilities along Barry Drive; and new pedestrian facilities."
