Mr Stanhope has announced that the dupication of Pialligo Avenue (near the airport) will not be finished before the election.
But he wants you to be sure the cheque’s in the mail and it will be open before Christmas.
Even better they managed to shake some of the cost out of the darkness on the edge of town otherwise known as the airport:
- “Minister for Territory and Municipal Services John Hargreaves said the duplication of Pialligo Avenue is being funded by the ACT Government ($7.5 m) and the Canberra Airport ($6.7 million).
“The Pialligo Avenue duplication is the first stage of a two stage road works program identified by a taskforce I set up to examine traffic congestion on roads in the vicinity of the airport,” Mr Hargreaves said.”
