Three Directorates in the ACT Public Service have been recognised for excellence in the transport, health and education sectors.

The Directorates – Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS), ACT Health and Education – contributed to winning the Cycling Luminaries Award, run by We Ride Australia, in the Bicycle Culture category.

The awards were made at the Australian Bicycle Summit in Melbourne.

Minister for Transport, Meegan Fitzharris said the aim was to get more Canberra kids riding and walking to school, and it was great to see this recognition of the work.

“We have supported school-based active travel initiatives through various programs and plans that target a range of issues,” Ms Fitzharris said.

“Some of these issues include cyclist and pedestrian safety, infrastructure improvements, and active travel educational materials.”

She said three more TCCS projects were recognised recently at the ACT Civil Contractors Federation Earth Awards for excellence for projects of differing values.

She said for projects valued at $2-to-$5 million, the Northbourne Avenue Sydney and Melbourne Building Verge Improvements took the prize and in the $5-to-$10 million category the Gungahlin Bus Station and Hibberson Street Shared Zone were the winners.

For projects valued at $10-to-$30 million, the Isabella Weir Upgrade was awarded.

“The TCCS Infrastructure team has worked tirelessly to deliver these projects to the community, so to win awards in three categories is an incredible achievement,” Ms Fitzharris said.
