The ACT Government is continuing to breathe new life into Tuggeranong's Town Centre with a number of improvements completed/underway.
Anketell Street courtyard (Stage 1)
In November 2017 works were completed on the Anketell Street courtyard opposite South.Point shopping mall. These works removed the clutter and opened up the space with a new open paved area, street furniture, a feature light and more suitable tree species.
Anketell Street north (Stage 2)
Works got underway in January 2019 on the second stage of public realm improvements on Anketell Street.
The key priorities of the next stage of the Anketell Street north upgrade, between Reed Street North and Pitman Street, include:
More appropriate tree species will be planted in locations clear of underground services. At completion of the upgrade there will be more trees than before works started.
To facilitate these upgrades, there will be a road closure in place on Anketell Street in both directions from Pitman Street to Reed Street (North). During construction, there is a temporary taxi rank on Pitman Street between Anketell Street and Cowlishaw Street. The permanent taxi rank on Anketell Street will be reinstated after the works.
These works are expected to be completed mid-year.

Town Centre path upgrades
Missing links in the Tuggeranong Town Centre pedestrian path network will be completed with path improvements on Anketell Street, Reed Street and Soward Way. Site investigations and preliminary design will begin in February 2019.
Laneway connection to Lake Tuggeranong
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on a concept design for upgrades to the laneway connection to Lake Tuggeranong from September to November 2018.
The concept design shows the broad vision for a renewed space that is accessible, safe, useable and inviting; one that re-establishes visual connection to the lake, encourages people to move through easily and safely, as well as stop, enjoy the place and bring more vitality and commercial activity to Tuggeranong Town Centre.
