Member for Brindabella Andrew Wall has called upon the Government to crack down on reckless driving in the South of Canberra.
Called upon is code for “I’ve got no answers, but I’m employed to point fingers at the current government and by howdy I’m going to!”
“There are numerous examples of burnouts and other reckless behaviour [...]
Well, they’ve done it! The government has laid out their “speed cushions” on the streets around Tuggeranong. Just a single trip around these streets has highlighted some problems…
– They’ve succeeded in slowing traffic, however they now have the problem that traffic has been slowed beyond the 40km/h goal. Every time I went on those streets [...]
It is pleasing to see the TCC President is finally focussing on areas in the Valley apart from his beloved Calwell.
Perhaps my reports are starting to hit home. The latest is that he has launched a petition calling on the federal government to keep and even boost the number of public servants in the [...]
Gelato Mio, has opened at the Hyperdome which sells locally produced Gelati and claims them to be authentically Italian. I have missed having reasonable access to good Gelati and so have vested and deeply selfish interest in encouraging this one to commercial success.
After braving the delights of shepherding some younger relatives through their retail [...]
A dear friend of mine irregularly sends me snaps of the charity token bins at his local Waitrose supermarket in Suffolk. After discovering a similar arrangement at The Good Guys we did a brief desktop analysis.
The major findings were that:
— Tuggeranong likes Jamie Oliver better than Suffolk;
— The English support historic and [...]
Another from the unending fun of Tuggers Homeworld.
What sort of Drugs do they keep there during the day?
An excellent question.
Seen something interesting around Canberra? Own a fancy futuristic phone? You know what to do.
It seems there is a crash just about every morning on the parkway at the moment.
They are doing roadworks everywhere so the traffic every morning/afternoon is crazy.
Also what’s the go with the speed bumps and crossing they have put in on McCullock St in Curtin,
I know people need to cross the road [...]
I have just read a media release from the new president of the Tuggeranong Community Council.
It seems the TCC is so eager to see Zed in Federal Parliament it has already crowned him “Senator” Seselja. (Hope that goes down well with Gary Humphries and his supporters) Doesn’t the TCC realise there needs to be [...]

It was good to see the Chief Minister, Katy Gallagher at the last Tuggeranong Community Council Meeting. More than 60 people were at the meeting and asked her many questions about Tuggeranong, public transport, health, planning and development, aircraft noise and Tralee just to mention a few.
It was a very good night, spoiled only [...]

Steve Dozpott was sent packing to Molonglo because, so we were told, Zed wanted to serve [...]
I have just received the agenda for the next Tuggeranong Community Council meeting. The guest speaker will be the Chief Minister, Katy Gallagher. Perhaps she will take the time to explain why Tuggeranong is treated as the poor cousins of Canberra.

Trent sent this one in:
I have always enjoy Canberra’s street art and recently stumbled on this beauty at the back of Kambah Shops! The scale is impressive

Melbourne has its ”Yellow Peril” sculpture at Southbank and Tuggeranong has its “Red Menace” not just one but two.
What looks like a giant red Bogon Moth has now been joined by another huge red monstrosity, a pedestrian bridge over Drakeford Drive.
I accept a pedestrian bridge is needed near the school, but surely architects and designers could have used [...]
So the new extensions to the Tuggeranong Hyperdome are open.
I took a good look around today and soon realised that its a lot of the same old same old, re-arranging the chairs so to speak.

A headline “ACT Labor to bring family fun to Tuggeranong Pool” does make one wonder what kind of hellish facility they’ve been running down there until now. But here’s the announcement:
If re-elected in 2012, ACT Labor will commit $600,000 to establish a family water play area as part of the Lakeside Leisure Centre at Tuggeranong.

Tuggeranong people park pretty perfectly.
This car is perhaps a tad to the rear of the allocated rectangle, but isn’t parked over a line.
