A very full agenda for this month’s Gungahlin Community Council meeting:

  • Update on the EIS and design of the Clarrie Hermes Drive Extension to Barton Hwy by consultants SMEC (much wanted by nearby residents who are already copping a lot of traffic from the developing Casey).
  • ACT Education will provide updates on the Gungahlin College and Harrison High School projects (which GCC has been involved in the Design Working Groups for from day 1).
  • TaMS staff will consult on the Sustainable Public Transport Strategy.

Time: Wednesday, 09 September 2009 19:30
Location: Palmerston Community Centre, Tiptree Crs, next to the Palmerston shops.

Roads and buses is just so unvisionary and, well, boring.

I bet the meeting will have the inevitable question of why not light rail. Let go, move on and work with the Government to build better roads and more bus services.

Indeed Damian. Much of what is being proposed in the strategy for 2021 is what I would have thought would make up the public transport system Canberra needs right now.
It seems that what my predecessor Ian used to call “tiny towns syndrome” lives on…

I am really excited about the Harrison High School. It will be a beautiful building!

You might want to ask TAMS how making one hour frequency services standard in ‘local’ service areas will increase PT trips taken.

Also, ask for maps of which parts of Gungahlin will be affected by this new policy.
