‘Once finalised, the management plan will ensure that Lake Burley Griffin and adjacent lands are protected in accordance with their heritage significance.’
This is the second phase of public consultation undertaken by the NCA. The first stage included the preparation of a heritage assessment followed by stakeholder workshops and an online survey.

The draft plan is online and comments close 29 May.
- Over the last five months, the southbound lanes of Anzac Parade, between Fairbairn Avenue and Constitution Avenue have been replaced.
These lanes were reopened to traffic on 18 March and work since then has focused on upgrading the verge and median island.

Stage two, replacing the northbound lanes will start in November.
