The Weston Creek Community Council welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback on the Transport for Canberra 2011-2031 draft report. While we support the overall direction of the plan and its action items, we have a number of suggestions as well as concerns we wish to raise. We’d like to see these taken on board in the final version of the report, as well as in the implementation of the transport plan over the next twenty years.
Our concerns and suggestions are detailed further below in two sections. Section 1 includes general comments on the report and the ACT transport strategy, while Section 2 deals specifically with the Weston Creek district – identifying Weston Creek residents’ views on what’s in store for our area, the potential impact of proposed plans, and suggestions on how they could be improved. Some of the key issues are summarised below for reference.
