Woden bus interchange

(Question No 657)

Mr Smyth

asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice:

In relation to the relocation of Woden bus interchange:

Can the Minister advise if this project has been completed, if not, why not and when will it be completed, if so, what will occur with the outstanding authorisation of $47,000 for this project.

Mr Corbell

: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

Plans for the Woden Bus Interchange are not yet finalised.
