War of Words over Bus Network

Category: Capital Radio News


The ACT Government and Opposition have continued their war of words over the new bus network. 

After declaring an expansion of the Park and Ride at Wanniassa, Transport Minister Chris Steel took a cheeky dig at the Canberra Liberals over headlines that showed there could be a change in leadership.

"They're more interested in talking about themselves and their failed leadership team than they are about any plans they have for the south side," Steel said.

The news Alistair Coe could be replaced before next year's election was quickly snuffed out on Monday by his Deputy Nicole Lawder. Today Opposition Spokeswoman for Transport Candice Burch once again attacked the new bus network.

"Since August we've seen bus patronage fall in Belconnen, Woden and Tuggeranong, customer satisfaction has plummeted and we're yet to see any actual improvement in the problems plaguing the network," Burch said.

The Opposition claims 752 bus stops have been cut since the new network was introduced earlier this year.
