A man is in a stable condition after he was hit and injured by a tram undergoing testing on Canberra's light rail tracks, about a month out from the network's planned start date.
An ACT government spokeswoman said initial investigations suggested the pedestrian had stepped in front of the light rail vehicle against a red signal while wearing headphones.

An Emergency Services Agency spokesman said the man suffered upper body injuries and injuries to both legs.
The man remained conscious after the collision and was not trapped under the tram. He was taken to Canberra Hospital in a stable condition.
