Update 14 - Acton tunnel affected ACTION bus services

The westbound lanes of Parkes Way at Acton tunnel will remain closed for this evening's peak period. Disruptions will continue for ACTION services, although school services are not impacted.

ACTION's Route 81 which services the National Zoo and Aquarium, National Arboretum, Black Mountain Tower and the Australian National Botanic Gardens will be diverted via Clunies Ross Street instead of Parkes Way.

The bus stop at Edinburgh Avenue/QT Canberra (#4633) will not be serviced during this time by Routes 81, 718 and 719. The alternative bus stop for Route 81 is at the City bus station, Platform 9. The alternative bus stop for Routes 718 and 719 is at the City West bus station, Platform 1.

Services during the afternoon peak may also be delayed due to increased traffic congestion in the City area. Passengers should allow extra time for travel and use the real time passenger information system NXTBUS (nxtbus.act.gov.au) to monitor the actual arrival time of their bus. For up-to-date information on bus services call the ACTION bus information line on 13 17 10 or monitor ACTION's Twitter account @ACTIONbuses.
