Territory And Municipal Services have called for feedback on planned changes to the bus network.

The catch? You’ve got until tomorrow to get them in to

“A number of improvements have been identified to the ACTION bus network for 2012. Bus commuters are reminded to provide feedback on the proposed changes which will help inform the final network,” Mr Roncon said.

“Network improvements are proposed for services operating in Kippax; Gungahlin; Central Canberra; Fyshwick and Majura Park. A high frequency link between Woden and the Canberra Hospital has also been proposed.

“Identified improvements include:

— extension of the Blue Rapid to Kippax providing a direct link between Kippax, Belconnen, the City, Woden and Tuggeranong;
— provision of services in new suburbs in Gungahlin such as Forde, Bonner and Casey;
— redesign of routes in Central Canberra to enhance services to the City, Australian National University and National Museum of Australia;
— increased frequency of services to Majura Park; and
— enhanced services to and through Fyshwick.

There’s a page on the Transport website with more details.

UPDATE: The Chief Minister’s office has been in touch to note that the consultation has been running since 21 October.

The reason for the delay is that Woden Depot is required for the new network as the existing depots are pretty much full.

Given that there was a post on the RA about all of these changes on the 21st of October, which contains a link to the feedback information, and that post is showing up as the first option in the ‘related content’ under this post, this really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone!

The original notification on RiotACT of the consultation.

Hopefully everyone said looks good, but why so long for implementation if the need is already identified?

Please note this is a reminder for Canberrans to provide feedback to the proposed ACTION Network 12 consultation. The consultation has been open since 21 October and some valuable feedback has been received.
