The ACT Government is delivering a new Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) Campus to Woden. This state of the art learning facility will be focused on jobs of the future in a purpose built environment meeting the needs of students, staff and the community. The Campus will be open to students for the 2025 learning year.
Inside this virtual room you will find project information, indicative designs and plans and ways in which you can have your say on this exciting project.
If you have any further questions, please contact the Project Team at:
The new Woden CIT campus will be built at the site of the existing Woden bus interchange.
The project’s feasibility studies included an assessment of a number of possible sites within the Woden region. The site chosen ensures the new facilities will be built in a central, well-connected part of Woden and will support the area’s revitalisation.
A purpose built education facility to meet the needs of students, teachers and our community in to the future. Moving from Reid to Woden allows for much innovation and creativity. Design and planning will continue throughout 2021 and 2022.
These are potential inclusions in the new CIT Campus-Woden building. All are under consideration and will be explored further by the successful contractor responsible for design and construction of the building.
Online interactive survey and community information pop-ups were held in July - Sept 2021. 'What we Heard' report will soon follow.
It's not too late - you can still email us comments on this shared zone connection:
We have commenced a process of meaningful engagement with First Nations Elders and knowledge holders. The themes represented here have come about from workshops and interviews and are elements for consideration in the new Campus and precinct. How they will be realised is still to be determined and will be directed by First Nations artists and advisers.
In 2020 several options for the CIT Campus overall style were put to the community. The preferred option is being used to inform design.
The new public transport interchange, incorporating the Woden bus interchange and future light rail terminus, will be built on Callam Street. The new interchange will comprise up to 18 bus stops, an increase from the current 11. The DA for the bus layovers was submitted in January 2021, with construction due to begin in April or May 2020.
To support the operations of the new Woden public transport interchange, two new bus layover areas will be constructed close to the Woden town centre. The new Easty Street bus layover will provide space for short term layovers and driver facilities. The DA for the bus layovers was submitted in January 2021, with construction due to begin in April or May 2020.
To support the operations of the new Woden public transport interchange, two new bus layover areas will be constructed close to the Woden town centre. The new Launceston Street bus layover will provide space for short term layovers and driver facilities.
During community engagement in late 2020, we heard that your priorities for a new public transport interchange were.
In November and December 2020 we consulted the public on the new Callam St interchange. You had your say via the above method.
In May 2020, we launched our Design & Values Survey, which asked the community and key stakeholders what elements of design they felt were important to consider as the project is developed. A 'connected' design was highly valued by the community, with the top six considerations displayed above.
As part of the CIT Campus – Woden project, Bowes and Bradley Streets in the Woden town centre will be connected as a local access shared zone to create a shared space for pedestrians, cyclists and local traffic.
This new connection will improve accessibility to the area for commuters, CIT staff and students, community and local businesses, as well as help to transform the town centre into a vibrant, activated space.
Have your say on your preferred amenity and design features for the new connection, as well as on a new pedestrian boulevard linking the new public transport interchange with the Woden town centre.
