Change Canberra Light Rail Project to Bus "Metro"
The city of Brisbane has decided to abandon plans for a track based metro and instead upgrade its existing bus transit system. I suggest Canberra should similarly change the currently Light Rail Project to use buses. The roadworks already underway for light rail could continue, but without track or overhead power installed. The money saved could be spent on hybrid articulated buses to run on the new dedicated roadway. If light rail becomes viable in the future it can be installed. However, new technology will likely make light rail obsolete in the next ten years.
