Katy Gallagher is letting the world know that she’s spent a record amount on capital works (or as she prefers to call it “infrastructure investment”):
“The Government has successfully achieved a preliminary outcome of $580 million for the 2009-10 Capital Works Program,” Ms Gallagher said.
“This is an exceptional outcome- almost double the previous record of $296 million which we achieved in 2008-09,” she said.
And what did we get for the money? Here’s the highlights reel:
- — the Belconnen Arts Centre,
— a new 16 bed intensive care unit at Calvary Hospital,
— the Canberra Hospital’s new Walk-in Centre,
— a new Southside Park‘n’Ride and Bike‘n’ride facility at Mawson,
— the upgrade of Tharwa Drive,
— the extension of Wells Station Drive,
— the Lakeside Leisure Centre refurbishment,
— City West Infrastructure Stage 2, and
— a new Horticultural Facility at the CIT Bruce Campus.
