SIMON Corbell has triumphantly announced some benefit to the southern half of Canberra from his Capital Metro project with a Kambah company getting in on the action.
“Capital Metro Agency today commenced a program of utility services investigation works by Kambah company Leach Steger that will provide further detail around the location of underground services along the light rail corridor,” Simon said.
“The works are a critical part of informing the project’s next phase of design, in addition to providing more certainty around costs.
“This is an important and exciting step for the Capital Metro project. These investigations will provide the Capital Metro Agency with required detail to further progress their early designs and to validate the projected costs.
“I am very pleased to say this work is being planned and delivered out of local offices and using local experts. The Canberra office of Brown Consulting is working closely with Kambah-based survey company Leach Steger to deliver these works and this is a great example of Capital Metro engaging well with local industry.”
We also note that a rather fetching sandwich board has turned up on City Walk directing the citizenry to more information on the project. No word on whether the sandwich board fabrication work went to a Belconnen company.
