Traffic disruptions hit Canberra as Callam Street gets closed for good

Minister of Transport, Chris Steel announced the permanent closure of part of Callam Street which will be turned into a pedestrian friendly space.

Construction has already taken off the ground to build a new on-street transport interchange on Callam Street. The new development will see the erection of a light rail stop in Woden and a bus layover facilities.

“Disruptive period of construction” will involve permanently closing Callam Street between Bradley Street and Matilda Street from mid-August to “create a pedestrian-friendly space between the town centre and Woden Town Park,” said Steel.

Apart from the 10,000m2 of passenger-friendly space, the project will come with seven more bus stops added to the area and a light rail station.

The first phase construction work includes building new bus layovers on Launceston and Easty Streets plus a driver amenity facilities, road improvements on Wilbow, Easty, Launceston and Callam Streets.

The development also will also introduce new traffic signals installed at the Bowes/Launceston, Callam/Launceston and Easty/Launceston intersections and a new pedestrian across the town centre.
