Today #Wanniassa residents spoke to the media about their anger on the closure of bus stops & cancellation of buses. 🚌 For many of these residents with health & mobility issues, it’s too far to walk to the shops - so it’s forcing them to use their cars 🚘


Last Friday I called Access Canberra @actgovernment about the street lights on tillyard drive not being on and still they are not on at night BUT are on during the day. They told me that they had a new supplier for street lights and that was the problem. What rubbish. #canberra
