New signs for the lakes

By johnboy - 7 March 2012 24

Chief Minister Gallagher has announced more signage for Canberra’s lake shores.

This project is part of the ACT Labor Governments long term plan to manage and upgrade urban amenity for the benefit of all Canberrans and maintain our high standard of living,” the Chief Minister said.

“It has been funded as part of a $9.2 million initiative in the Capital Works Budget to improve cycling, signage and footpaths and to encourage Canberrans and tourists to walk or cycle around our waterways.

“These lakes offer some great facilities, such as dog off-leash areas and parks and it is hoped that the maps and information included on the signs may encourage people to explore beyond their normal walking and cycling routes,” the Chief Minister said.

The signage includes directions, distances and times to walk and cycle to popular destinations, maps, and details of nearby attractions and heritage sites. A total of 86 permanent signs, 23 seats and six bubblers have been installed as part of the project to date and follows the installation last year of 37 signs, four bubblers and 14 seats around the 16 kilometre west-basin loop of the Lake Burley Griffin circuit.

Seven permanent signs have now been installed around the east-basin loop. Temporary signage has also been installed through the Kingston Foreshore area to guide people through the precinct until the final path alignment along the Harbourside is completed.

“The installation of the central basin loop signs, following approval from the National Capital Authority, will then complete the signage system to provide guidance and inform tourists and locals alike on the many attractions and points of interest around the full 28 Kilometre Lake Burley Griffin circuit,” the Chief Minister said.

“It is hoped that the project will also increase the popularity of Lake Tuggeranong, Lake Ginninderra and Yerrabi Pond which are each located near Town Centres.

No mention of whether “NO TEEPEES” sign will be going up.

I just figured they were going to slap a thousand or so LAKE BURLEY GRIFFIN signs.

You know, just in case you forgot.

I’d never even considered cycling around the lakes, but if I see a sign encouraging me to do so I’m sure I will.

Signs. Is there anything they can’t do?
