Chamberlains - complete legal services for business

Police and ACTION playing war games in Tuggeranong tomorrow.

By johnboy - 11 August 2011 4

ACT Policing and ACTION buses are cooperating in a series of training exercises beginning tomorrow (Friday, August 12) at the Tuggeranong bus interchange.

These programs will simulate incidents to which ACTION drivers and staff may be required to respond, and to assess the decision-making and response of police officers.

The exercises will require areas of the interchange to be closed to the public during the day.

Between 8.30am and 4pm tomorrow, all services which would normally depart from Tuggeranong Bus Station will arrive and depart from Athllon Drive, between Pitman Street and Reed Street, on both sides of the road.

Signs have been erected to guide people to the temporary arrival and departure locations and ACTION staff will be on hand to direct people to the alternative location. Any further information on the changes to the bus arrangements should be directed to ACTION buses on 13 17 10 or visit www.action.act.gov.au

Just dissolve ACTION and build a new organisation. We’ll all probably be better off in the long run. These games are just like to be patch up an exhaust with hundreds of holes…

I wish the police would run war games with ActewAGL. ACTION bus drivers don’t have to go into Northbourne flats, BEGA flats, Kanangara court, Manuka flats etc after dark for no supply callouts.

Wouldnt it make sense to do this on a Sunday afternoon or some other non-peak time than 8:30-4 on a weekday? Cant wait to see the chaos this causes as people unaware of this event, turn up to the interchange, only to have to run another few minutes up the road.

Seriously, whos brainiac idea was it to do this?

Either you run to a bus for one work day, and the police and ACTION pay regular wages, or a few less people run to the bus on a Sunday and the Police and ACTION pay overtime. My guess is thats why the brainiac chose to have it on a weekday.
