About the project

Opening in 2025, the CIT Woden Campus project is delivering a state-of-the-art education facility, a new public transport interchange and a youth foyer for disadvantaged students.

We are seeking ideas from the Canberra community from March to May 2024 to name the public plazas and shared spaces across the CIT Woden Campus precinct, currently referred to as:

  • North Plaza
  • West Plaza
  • East-West Boulevard

Naming these spaces will improve wayfinding for students, staff and visitors across the CIT Woden Campus. It also provides an opportunity to create long-lasting meaning and connection between people and places.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The ACT Government is investing in a purpose-built CIT campus, youth foyer and new public transport interchange for Woden, stimulating the local economy and supporting the revitalisation of Canberra’s southern hub.

Major improvements are coming to the Woden Town Centre, with new educational and community facilities to be built in a central, well-connected part of Woden complemented by a new public transport interchange.

The new CIT Woden Campus is situated in Woden town centre, off Callam and Bradley streets, next to Westfield shopping centre.

The Woden Bus Interchange, established in the early 1970s, has been a key component of Canberra's public transport system, serving as a central hub for bus services in the region.

Over the years, the Woden Interchange has undergone several upgrades and modifications to accommodate the growing population, the changing landscape of Canberra and the needs of residents. These adaptations included improvements in infrastructure, amenities and technology to enhance the overall commuter experience.

As part of the ACT Government's $14 billion Infrastructure Plan, major improvements are coming to the Woden Town Centre.

To make space for the plan the old transport interchange was demolished in 2023. In it's place a new CIT, community facility, public spaces and cafes will be built and the future public transport interchange will be located adjacently on Callam Street
