Using Action buses is a cost effective transport option. and there is no need to find a carpark and pay for parking.

Leave the car for free at the Park and Ride at Kirkpatrick Street and catch the Route 182 bus for a 15 minute ride directly to Civic. There is a bus every half hour both into and out of the city.

MY WAY Card and FARES – ACTION Buses use a MyWay smartcard prepaid ticketing system as well as accepting cash fares. If you are a concession holder or a senior travel is free in off peak periods.

Members of Weston Creek Community Council will raise concerns about a roundabout planned to link the Canberra Brickworks precinct to a busy thoroughfare at this week’s meeting.

The roundabout plan was submitted in October last year as the best option for a new access road connecting the brickworks precinct to Dudley Street.

cotterrdWork 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.

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.
