Belconnen town centre
Since the release of the Belconnen Town Centre Master Plan in 2001, the Territory has worked with business and community interests to achieve transport and urban design improvements in Belconnen town centre.
Agreement with Westfield
The ACT Government has entered into an agreement with Westfield to incorporate a new bus station as part of an upgraded shopping centre in the town centre. This private sector investment provides the impetus for the Territory to improve road and pedestrian connections between Emu Bank and Lathlain Street and to replace the existing bus interchange with a new bus station that supplements the retail station by providing convenient and safe connections to office employment and community facilities such as the Belconnen Health Centre and the library. This is in line with the Belconnen Town Centre Master Plan.
