A CANBERRA Liberals government will duplicate major roads, upgrade carparks, improve playgrounds and establish an AFL hub in Canberra’s south. 

The Liberals’ plan for Tuggeranong and the Brindabella region will see them make major improvements to public parks, playgrounds, local shops, roads and sports infrastructure. They say they will also fix dangerous footpaths and restore public lighting.

“Major roads like Tharwa Drive and Isabella Drive will be duplicated and access to popular recreational areas like Mount Taylor will be significantly improved with real upgrades to car parking,” says a Canberra Liberals spokesperson.

“We will better connect Tuggeranong to Canberra with more local bus services and dedicated school buses. The Canberra Liberals will create mountain bike connections from Tharwa to Stromlo to attract more visitors to the region and support local recreation.

“We will future-proof sporting infrastructure in Tuggeranong with a new $12.3 million indoor multipurpose sports complex in Calwell and upgrades to the Greenway AFL Oval. We will also establish an AFL Hub in Kambah.”

Canberra Liberals leader Alistair Coe says the Canberra Liberals will get on with the job from day one in government.

“Tuggeranong will see a boom in services under a Liberal government,” Mr Coe says.

The Liberals say they’ll also improve footpaths in Greenway, Kambah, Calwell, Wanniassa, Fadden and Chisholm, invest in better street lighting, upgrade local parks, upgrade playgrounds at Fadden Pond, Fadden Pines, Calwell, Erindale, Wanniassa, Theodore, Gilmore and Caroline Chisholm Park, invest in new traffic lights at Mortimer Lewis Drive and Lawrence Wackett Crescent, and improve lakeside parking in Greenway, Gordon, Wanniassa and Erindale.

They will also invest in more mowing, pruning and street sweeping to keep Tuggeranong beautiful and inspire community pride

The party has not said how much it will all cost.
