Bus routes in Tuggeranong—petitions 19-17 and 26-17
By Ms Fitzharris, Minister for Transport and City Services, dated 27 February 2018, in response to a petition lodged by Mr Parton on 28 November 2017 concerning rerouting buses away from Anketell Street, Tuggeranong.
The response read as follows:
Dear Mr Duncan
Thank you for your letter of 28 November 2017 regarding petition Nos 19-17 and 26-17 about rerouting buses away from Anketell Street, Tuggeranong.
Transport Canberra does not support the proposal of immediate and permanent rerouting of buses away from Anketell Street as proposed, as this would negatively impact the reliable delivery of public transport services through the Tuggeranong Town Centre.
I am pleased to inform you that representatives from Transport Canberra have had preliminary discussions with members of the Tuggeranong Community Council regarding this proposal. Whilst confirming the position that scheduled services will not be rerouted as proposed, this meeting did open up a welcome dialogue between the directorate and the community regarding the situation and aspirations to improve the amenity of the area.
Transport Canberra and City Services officials will continue to work closely with the Tuggeranong community to discuss longer term options for improved public transport provision within the Town Centre, ensuring that public transport can contribute positively to the growth and revitalisation that benefits the entire community.
Thank you for raising this matter. I trust the information provided is of assistance.

By Mr Gentleman, Minister for the Environment and Heritage, dated 1 March 2018, in response to a petition lodged by Ms Lee on 30 November 2017 concerning heritage protection for Lake Burley Griffin and surrounds.
Thank you for your letter of 30 November 2017 regarding petition No. 30-17 lodged by Ms Lee MLA on behalf of certain Australian Capital Territory residents.
