The State of Canberra Suburbs


Concerns have been raised about the state of Canberra’s suburbs.

Opposition leader ELIZABETH LEE says maintenance issues involving roads, green spaces and community facilities have cropped up, particularly in areas of Tuggeranong, Belconnen and Kurrajong.

“Canberrans are feeling let down and neglected as they look around their neighbourhoods and see broken footpaths, overgrown verges and parks, roads riddled with potholes, overflowing rubbish bins, playgrounds broken and lacking shade, and neglected waterways,” she said.

Ms LEE says taxpayers are paying extra to the Government and she wants to see authorities return that money to the community.

“Every day, I receive complaints from members of the community who are fed up with the state of their suburbs, fed up with waiting weeks, months and even years for things to be fixed and are fed up with being neglected by this Labor-Greens government.”
