Hey inlet lovers, have a look at this little number.
Shane Rattenbury just let us know that the revamp to Lake G’s inlet area is all done, and the area is ready to once again be filled with abandoned shopping trolleys, surly drunk teens, and sick looking wild dogs.
It looks quite nice actually.
“The ACT Government invested $4.67 million in works to improve water quality in the lake, as well as the recreational access and amenity at Eastern Valley Way Inlet on the foreshore of Lake Ginninderra,” Mr Rattenbury said.
“The completed upgrade provides continued improvements to the landscaping and promenade areas adjacent to the lake.
“The inlet has been converted into a wetlands system which will help improve Lake Ginninderra’s water quality and provide important habitat for water birds, frogs and tortoises.
“The wetlands feature a series of ponds and shallower sections which are planted with native aquatic plants that help to filter the water before it moves out to the lake.
“A new pedestrian bridge across the inlet has been constructed, improving access and connectivity with the Belconnen Town Centre precinct and John Knight Memorial Park, and new paving has been laid adjacent to the Belconnen Skate Park. New lighting, picnic tables and tree plantings have also been provided to enable a more attractive and active public space.
