ANDREW Wall says the Barr government is once again ignoring the needs of Tuggeranong residents.
“Gungahlin Marketplace, City, Belconnen and Woden bus stations were all included in the free shuttle bus services offered to Canberrans which allowed access to the Australia Day festivities held over the last couple of days. However, Tuggeranong residents were again left off the list,” Andrew said.
“This is becoming a familiar theme from this government, total disregard and neglect for the people of Tuggeranong.
“The Barr government is intent on spending $783 million on light rail that will have next to no benefit for anyone living in Tuggeranong suburbs, however Tuggeranong residents are still expected to carry their share of the burden in the form of increasing rates, fees and charges.
“The government needs to explain why Tuggeranong residents are continually treated as second class citizens,” Mr Wall said.
