Gungahlin’s future through VR

From 23 October to 3 November 2017 a virtual reality experience will be available at Gungahlin Library for Canberrans to see what the new Gungahlin bus station and shared zone will look like and how they will move between transport services within the Gungahlin Town Centre in the future.

The virtual reality experience allows you to wander down Hibberson Street and Gungahlin Place with a 360 degree view. It allows you to appreciate the links between these projects and what the new Gungahlin Town Centre will look like upon completion. The key features of the virtual reality clip include:

  • new traffic lights at the intersection of Hibberson Street and Gungahlin Place to provide patron transfer between buses and light rail
  • bus platforms and bus facilities on both sides of Gungahlin Place, between Hibberson Street and Ernest Cavanagh Street
  • the light rail terminus on Hibberson Street, east of Gungahlin Place, within easy sight of the bus station platforms; and
  • a walk down Hibberson Street, to experience the pedestrian friendly nature of the one-way shared zone.

The virtual reality experience is on offer between 10 am and 5 pm Monday to Friday and 10 am to 1 pm on Saturdays until Friday 3 November 2017. The library is located on the corner of Hibberson and Gozzard Streets.

Construction of the bus station on Gungahlin Place is now underway. During works, Gungahlin Place will be closed in both directions between Ernest Cavanagh Street and Hibberson Street to facilitate an efficient construction process. Pedestrian access to local businesses abutting the bus station will be maintained during the construction period.

Works will carry through into 2018, with landscape works to be carried out in the 2018 planting season. Construction of the Hibberson Street shared zone to commence in early 2018, when the bus station is in operation.
