Simon Corbell is not letting the caretaker convention get between himself and his ministerial letterhead.
Today he’s unveiled a master plan for the vexed Erindale group centre complete with a transport hub:
Shoppers and workers at the Erindale group centre are set to benefit from an extra 1200 car spaces, a new bus station, better walking and cycling connections and a possible second supermarket, Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development, Simon Corbell, said today.
Mr Corbell unveiled the final master plan for the Erindale centre today which aims to boost car parking over the life of the master plan to make it easier for shoppers to park in the short, medium and long term.
“This master plan will give Erindale centre the breath of fresh air to sustain a growing population as well as continued viability of retail and business uses in the centre,” Mr Corbell.
“The plan is focused around the development of a new transport hub including a new Rapid bus station with park and ride facilities and the relocation of the local bus stop to provide better transport links into the city and other town centres.
“It outlines better ways for people to access and move around the group centre, with a focus on improving transport links for buses, cars, pedestrians and bikes.
Wanniassa’s enthusiasm for bicycles and public transport being the first thing one notices in that part of Canberra.
