Work starts on Moncrieff

Share Canberra's trusted news:

ANDREW Barr has announced the start of work on the first stages of the the new Gungahlin suburb of Moncrieff.

$150 million will be spent on capital works for the provision of infrastructure and services

“Part of the ACT Government’s construction stimulus package, the release of multiple civil contracts is aimed at supporting and stimulating the local construction industry by sharing the work across a number of local contractors and in turn, making the majority of the estate ‘build-ready’ more quickly,” Andrew said.

“The initial work is focused in the western part of Moncrieff, a 62 hectare site that is designed to accommodate approximately 1,000 dwellings and a commercial precinct in the north east corner, adjacent to the intersection of Mirrabei and Horse Park Drives, which will include a group centre, community facilities and medium density housing.”
