The Woden, Weston Creek, and growing Molonglo Valley region includes some of Canberra’s newest and most popular suburbs for growing families.
Through the 2020-21 ACT Budget, the government is delivering what we promised by investing in new and upgraded local infrastructure and supporting the services that you and your family rely on.
Free bulky waste collections will be available for every household in the region by July 2021. The bulky waste service is a great way to get rid of some of those unwanted items around the house.
Canberra’s first Walk-In Health Centre is on track to open in Coombs and will be co-located with the National Health Co-op GP clinic. The new centre is on track to be open on 1 July 2021 and will provide local families with a range of maternal and child health services.
Services at the popular Weston Creek Walk-In Centre will be extended with a new outpatient imaging service to reduce wait times in emergency. Visit the ACT Health website to find out more about Walk-In Centres and Walk-In Health Centres.
Detailed design and construction will begin for the John Gorton Drive extension and a bridge across the Molonglo River to make travelling to and from Belconnen and the city easier for families in the Molonglo Valley and Weston Creek. Visit the City Services website to find out more about road upgrades.
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.
Philip District Enclosed Oval is also set for an upgrade, with the ACT Government investing in a new pavilion, upgraded grandstand and lighting as well as additional parking.
