SHANE Rattenbury has opened a new $350,000 park and ride facility in Gungahlin to improve transport options to north Canberra residents ahead of the introduction of Network 14, and also provide parking close to future light rail facilities.
“The new Park and Ride facility in Gungahlin includes 345 parking spaces conveniently located near bus stops on Valley Avenue and Hibberson Street and future light rail facilities in the area,” Shane said.
“The Red Rapid bus routes currently service the area every 10 minutes during the peak period and every 15 minutes during the off-peak. This will be improved to every 5 minutes during the peak period with the introduction of Network 14
“This new facility will allow Gungahlin residents to combine vehicle use with bus travel to give patrons a quick and hassle free trip to Canberra’s busy town centres while saving them money and the stress of finding a car park in town. It is also been located a short walk from the future light rail network.”
OLIVIA Zhang, from Radford College, and Elwyn Copelin, from the Orana Steiner School have beaten 450 other students in a competition to design artwork to feature on two new waste and recycling collection vehicles.
