On Gininderra Drive there are keep left unless over taking signs west bound going up the hill just before the intersection with Gungahlin Drive and east bound just past the intersection with Kingsford Smith Drive.
Under the road rules keep left unless overtaking applies on roads with a speed limit greater than 80km/h or where signs [...]
Looking for a good beauty therapist for waxing, facials etc. The last girl I had left her work and my new one (which will remain unnamed) ripped the skin off of my arm :(. Would love to here all of your experiences and advice.
I live south side so anywhere there would be preferable.
The 8th annual ‘School Stars Band Competition’ hosted by the CIT Music Industry Centre is now calling for entries from school and college students in the ACT region.
Anyone know what the deal is with the guy in Gungahlin who’s parked his van up on Kate Crace Street and set up a tent?
Has been there since Friday?
Driving east on Parkes Way this morning, I noticed (at least) two poles in the median, each with two cameras on them.
They look like fixed speed cameras, but there’s no signs and no talk of such.
Any ideas, hivemind?
Hi everyone, I incredibly stupidly managed to lose my wedding rings at Woden on the weekend and I hoped the Rioters could keep an eye out for me?
Either in the carpark between the Hellenic Club and the bus interchange, closest to the bus interchange side; Fernwood gym, Muffin Break or Big W; sometime between [...]
I need to have some work done on my roof. I checked all comments on RiotACT about various roof and gutter businesses in Canberra but none are recent.
Any recent experiences with any such businesses? Thank you very much in advance for any recent feedback I can get.
[ED - let's limit the discussion to positive [...]
In episode one of Radio National’s The Science Show, hosted by Robyn Williams AM, the publisher of Scientific American said there was a stampede away from science. Was there? On 31 August 2013, almost two thousand episodes later, The Science Show celebrated its 38th birthday, and is still going strong.
Robyn has witnessed firsthand how [...]
So, what’s the goss about polling booths today?
I’m looking for a good taxation accountant who’s a registered tax agent. Does anyone have any recommendations?
My tax is not very complicated, but I prefer someone who is personable & knowledgeable, and can advise on issues such as investment properties and work-related deductions.
I am planning a major window cleaning episode at chez troll and am seeking fellow rioters’ recommendations as to the best newspaper to get my glazing sparkling in this glorious spring sunshine. The problem is, the newspapers I have tested this week are pretty woeful, and my limited testing has revealed the following traits:
All the [...]
The Canberra Times is asking where’s Zed?
The Canberra Liberals have been accused of avoiding public scrutiny during the election campaign by skipping out on at least seven multi-candidate forums in the ACT.
But a senior Liberals campaign spokeswoman rejected the suggestion by Greens Senate candidate Simon Sheikh that the party was hiding its candidates.
Mr Sheikh’s Liberal [...]
I require someone to do some paving work in my backyard.
It would be a small job (5-8 sq m) involving curved edging and paving around a drain.
I’m in the inner north.
Can anyone recommend a reliable paver who charges reasonable rates?
Does anybody know if both directions are monitored between Gungahlin Dr and Ellenborough St?
You have what appears to be the flash unit and the radar box pointing in one direction (sure it’s Eastbound) however just the smaller flash unit is pointing westbound.
Is this a dummy set up similar to Lanyon Dr southbound?

Have any Rioters (staff, guest or otherwise) heard anything about when the Canberra Centre’s reconstruction of their Food Court/lower level is due for completion other than ‘late 2013′? (Though that’s a broad window, so they’re still on track.)
Anything? Investigative journalism, low-level publicity or some other source?
Geoscience Australia’s Top GeoShot photography competition is now open.

I was in Victoria last month and managed to not see the lower speed signs around a level crossing on a country road.
I was clocked doing 100km/h in a 80 km/h zone.
I was wondering if the road authorities are organised enough for me to lose points on my ACT drivers licence as a [...]
I am just back from a weekend down at the far South Coast of NSW. As with many coastal towns, there is a large population of elderly drivers down that way. Not once, but twice did I end up in an intersection ‘stalemate’ with this genre of driver.
On both occasions I was at a four-way [...]
About 10:30 pm last night (Sun 1-Sep) I was heading for bed when I heard a loud explosion and we lost power for about 30 seconds. The bang was loud enough to wake up my kids, who all normally sleep like logs.
I called the Belco cops, and they said they’d had a brief power outage [...]
I just read that Gwen Shirlow, who took over the vet practice in Braddon from Peter Burgess, has left there.
Does anyone know where she moved to?
I urgently need a reliable vet for a complex medical problem my cat is suffering from.
Hey the weather is getting nicer, so maybe you should go talk a walk in it?
Maybe help raise money for a totally awesome playground while you’re at it?
Possibly at this walk to raise money so Boundless can build an awesome inclusive playground event.
Here’s the details:
The Boundless Canberra team would like to invite all Canberrans to [...]
Does anyone know of a decent camera repair place in Canberra?

The Animal Justice Party is preferencing liberals Zed Seselja over the Greens Simon Sheikh in the Senate. They are also top of the ballot paper, which means they will get the donkey vote. If you’re voting for the libs anyway, obviously it won’t matter.
If you think you’re voting for animal welfare however, you’re actually sending [...]
Raiders players must be embarrassed putting their hands out for payment particularly over the last 3 weeks – if they are then they should be!
Against Manly I switched off as I usually do these day’s when it reached 24 nil .
Manly were keeping time with the clock the white flag had been raised [...]
GPO BOX 158,
Canberra City ACT 2601
I don’t normally make a big fuss of things as I am quite a tolerant person, however the other day I had a couple run ins with ACTION BUS drivers. Both incidents occurred at the same intersection within 1 hour of each other. One face value they may [...]
Hi fellow rioters my fiancé and I are looking for an acoustic guitarist/band and mc for our wedding this year, does anyone have any recommendations?
Look forward to hearing everyone’s opinions!
I was riding home along Bindubi St bike path, Thursday night, dark, cold and raining.
Suddenly, along the roadside, I hear a loud gunshot. I look over to see a man pointing a gun towards the ground where someone was lying.
It took a second or two to make sense of the scene. It was an [...]
