A small win in the scheme of things

Following the Chair of Weston Creek Community Council's representation to the Chief Minister on the woefully inadequate coverage arising from the new ACTION Network 14 schedule there has been some small changes subsequently announced by the Chief Minister and the responsible Minister, Shane Rattenburry.

WCCC writes to Chief Minister on Action's Network 14 Timetable

Dear Chief Minister

  I am writing on behalf of the Weston Creek Community Council to express our concern with ACTION’s Network 14 timetable that took effect this week. To be blunt, Council is extremely disappointed with the Network 14 changes to bus services.  These impact negatively on public transport in both Weston Creek and Molonglo. 

 In contrast to the ACT Government’s often stated policy aim of encouraging people out of cars and onto public transport, Network 14 appears designed to achieve the opposite outcome in Weston Creek. Through poor route design and timetabling, ACTION appears determined to make bus travel by public transport to and from Weston Creek as indirect, time consuming and unattractive as possible.

Lake Tuggeranong

The Tuggeranong Community Council has prepared an E- Petition addressed To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory.

This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that for many years, Lake Tuggeranong has faced annual closures because of outbreaks of blue-green algae, caused by poor quality water.  These outbreaks lead to bad smells, health risks for people and animals, and cancelled sporting and community events.

Your petitioners therefore request that the Assembly call on the government to take immediate action to clean up Lake Tuggeranong, and fulfill their election promise to build wetlands in the Tuggeranong Valley, which will help to improve the quality of water flowing into the lake.
