Garran residents are famous for complaining about the noise of critically injured patients being delivered to the hospital.
Chief Minister Stanhope, however, has found it in his heart to announce $1 million in goodies for the Garran shops. The upgrades will include:
- — New lighting to enhance security.
— 14 car spaces in Garran Place and at the rear of the shops achieved by reconfiguring existing spaces.
— Upgrades to paving, including a gently graded path from the bus stop to the centre to help pedestrians and people with mobility issues to move about the shops.
— New seats, bins, bike racks and a public notice-board.
— New play space, trees and seating for the unused space opposite the shops.
Work is expected to be complete in June.
