MR STEEL (Murrumbidgee—Minister for Skills, Minister for Transport and City Services and Special Minister of State) (11.34): I am pleased to take this opportunity to update the Assembly on a number of key transport infrastructure projects being delivered by the ACT government and to highlight a number of the recently achieved and upcoming milestones within my Transport Canberra and City Services portfolio.
As we move through 2022, the territory is continuing to make a recovery from the sharpest impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years. We know that the pandemic is not over and that the current challenges being experienced by businesses, employers and agencies right across the city, heading into winter, are an important reminder that we need to stay vigilant in our response. But I am proud to acknowledge the significant benefit that direct investment by government in future-focused infrastructure is having on our city’s economic recovery.
Transport Canberra and City Services is investing in and delivering a $1 billion pipeline of projects through our infrastructure investment program. This is part of the ACT government’s much larger infrastructure agenda, which spans major projects across health, education, community services and more, as well as transformative projects like light rail to Woden and the new state-of-the-art Canberra Institute of Technology campus, which are outside of the TCCS portfolio.
