An estimated 30,000 people live in Weston Creek and the newly built suburbs of Wright and Coombs next door. However the residents in the new areas of Molonglo have no local shops or a service station, and most drive about ten minutes to Coolamon Court in Weston Creek to stock up.
The chair of Weston Creek Community Council Tom Anderson spoke to ABC Canberra breakfast host Laura Tchilinguirian about what’s happening to support new residents in Molonglo. Click to listen Duration: 6min 18sec

Work has started on the 2nd Stage of the Cotter Road Duplication from Yarralumla Creek to the Tuggeranong Parkway. The signs are up at each end of the proposed works and the tree clearing and digging has begun alongside the current bridge over Yarralumla Creek. As well the fences are being placed to the north of the Cotter Road in the treed area which likely shows the limit of the the road works that will occur.
Lets hope the works are undertaken quickly and the disruption is then over.
