Are you a commuter or wish to visit the City during the day.

Would you like to travel into the City directly in 18 minutes.

Not have to pay for parking

Take advantage of a service that runs every 30 mins in both directions

Then the new ACTION 182 service is for you.

The service originates at Woden BUT the last stop is at the Park and Ride at Kirkpatrick St, North Weston. Here is where the car can be parked at no charge and no permit required. You can join the bus for a journey directly into the City.


Update: Weston Creek Dog Park

dogPark1In the 2016 ACT Budget there was a small item ‘a new Dog Park for Weston Creek’.  The ACT Government have now provided further information, including possible locations: Holder; Chapman & Waramanga.

The Weston Creek Community Council is totally opposed to the proposed site for a Dog Park off Weingarth Street at Holder Neighbourhood Oval.  Council’s view is that you can’t place a Dog Park in the middle of a Residential Area.  Council wants Holder Neighbourhood Oval to remain as it is – a valuable resource to the neighbourhood.  We have lost too much Green Space within neighbourhoods over the years and this in reality would be another loss to those who go there.  We have seen the Ovals at the Old Holder High School disappear, parts of the Stirling Oval complex as well and we don’t want to lose more valuable green space in the middle of the suburb.  Like the other Dog Parks in Canberra, any Dog park for Weston Creek needs to be on the edge of the suburban area.

The Government is undertaking a survey now so please have your say on this by going to https://www.yoursay.act.gov.au/new-weston-creek-dog-park and have your say.

We are having a presentation of the proposed Dog Park areas for Weston Creek and Molonglo to our Public Meeting to be held on Wednesday 31 August at 7.30 pm at St Judes Primary School Hall in Mulley Street in Holder.  The presentation on the Dog Parks will be on around 8.15 to 8.30 following our Annual General Meeting and a Presentation on the Basin Priority Project.  So come along and listen to the presentation.
