Parkes way in Canberra

09 February 2021

  • Light Rail Stage 2A construction starting
  • Feasibility study for a Walk-in Health Centre in the Inner South
  • Feasibility study to improve Parkes Way

More and more Canberrans are choosing the inner-city suburb lifestyle that Canberra has to offer.

The ACT Government is using the 2020-21 Budget to continue investing in the infrastructure a growing city needs as we maintain our support for the Territory’s public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Free bulky waste collections will be available in for all households by July 2021, which is a great way to get rid of some of those unwanted items around the house.

Work is set to commence on extending the light rail network from Alinga Street to Commonwealth Park as part of the City to Woden light rail project, a project that will support 1,000 jobs in Canberra.

A feasibility study will be completed to establish a new Walk-In Health Centre in the Inner South to provide the free public healthcare you and your family needs.

A feasibility study will also be completed to improve Parkes Way to make it safer and easier to drive to and from the city.

Along with these important investments, the ACT Government is continuing to support our public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic with funding allocated to the rollout of the vaccine throughout 2021.
