The ACT Government is asking the community for your views about the City to the Lake project.

Come to the ‘Tent in West Basin’ to find out more, ask questions and have your say.

Linking the City to the Lake is a transformational project being developed within The City Plan.

The City Plan focuses on the city centre, including Civic and its surrounds. It is looking at the City as a whole to determine a comprehensive approach for the City’s future as an economically vibrant and attractive centre. The plan will look at the role of the City, transport and movement, growth in the City and improvements to the public realm. The City Plan will provide a framework for future growth and projects such as City to the Lake. The City to Lake project will extend the city towards the lake and better use the broad southern flank of the City. The study area stretches from West Basin to Anzac Parade, and will include new lakeside and City to the Lake residential, business and leisure opportunities, and improvements to Parkes Way to better connect the City and the lake. It identifies potential locations for a 30,000+ rectangular sports stadium, new convention centre, and a regional aquatic facility and urban beach.

The main components of the City to the Lake are:
 Alteration of Parkes Way into a ‘smart boulevard’ that is split level allowing free flowing traffic at the lower level and introducing local streets at the surface;
 Traffic calming of Vernon Circle and London Circuit together with the development of new streets to service the proposed West Basin residential and community areas;
 Integration and extension of Capital Metro to serve the whole City centre and connections to other town centres;
 A new diverse City precinct at West Basin and associated cultural facilities;
 Identifying and reserving potential sites for Australia Forum i.e. a new convention and exhibition centre, new city stadium and new regional aquatic facility and urban beach;
 Residential apartments mixed with commercial, retail and cultural facilities delivering 15,000 to 20,000 new residents.
 Strategically located multi-use car parks that provide for events and commuter car parking.
 Development consistent with Amendments 59, 60 and 61 of the National Capital Plan.
