The Greens’ Caroline Le Couteur is savouring triumph in the Greens long struggle for a Park’n’Ride at Calwell shops:
“A Park’n’Ride in Calwell, along with a new REDEX-style direct service to the Parliamentary Triangle and Civic, would give families more transport options and boost the local economy and community.
“A Calwell Park and Ride would service a number of suburbs in the surrounding area, and be ideally located for people travelling to Canberra from regional New South Wales.
The Minister’s announcement confirming the facility comes a week after he announced the trial of 40km/h speed zones around selected shopping centres.
“The 40km/h speed zones around shopping centres is the fulfilment of a Greens/ALP Parliamentary Agreement item.
“We’re seeing a number of Greens initiatives having a positive difference on the ground, making transport safer and more accessible to more Canberrans,” Ms Le Couteur said.
