• sport and recreation infrastructure projects near Woden include the Phillip Oval upgrade (AFL and cricket), the Melrose Football Precinct and Woden Park upgrade (athletics).
• five to six culturally appropriate units for older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Ulverstone Street Lyons being developed by Housing ACT. This project builds on the success of Mura Gunya, the first small complex of five dwellings constructed for older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Kambah. The location of health and community services, shops, offices and public transport were critical factors in deciding upon the Lyons location. It is intended a Development Application will be submitted before the end of the year and subject to approval construction will commence in early 2019.
• four small multi-unit public housing complexes are being constructed in Chapman, Holder, Mawson and Wright by the Public Housing Renewal Taskforce. The dwellings will be used to provide accommodation for public housing tenants. The sites were selected because of their proximity to shops, public transport, health and other community services and facilities. The residents will make use of the facilities and services available at Cooleman Court, Woden Town Centre and Molonglo.
• pedestrian and cycling accessibility improvements are being under taken by Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) within and around the Woden town centre. They are also implementing the key priorities of the Woden Town Centre master plan and undertaking public realm improvements including ‘the Woden Experiment’.
• TCCS are moving forward on a new bus depot for Woden that will improve public transport for the area as well as progressing early planning works for the City to Woden light rail corridor and intersection safety upgrades.
• the Woden library is being revitalised by TCCS.
There are also additional community related works that will be subject to funding and detailed design, in the future.
