Temporary closure of Vernon Circle lanes this weekend
Two lanes of Commonwealth Avenue and Vernon Circle will be closed temporarily this weekend as part of the refurbishment of the ACT Law Courts precinct.
The lanes will be closed from 6am Saturday 30 July to 7pm Sunday 31 July 2016 to ensure the safe installation of tower cranes at the site.
Law Courts project contract summary released
Attorney-General Simon Corbell released the contract summary for the new ACT Law Courts Precinct, the ACT Government’s first Public Private Partnership project in June.
The contract summary provides information for the community about the value for money the government has achieved by partnering with the private sector.
Order in the court
The Juris Partnership has officially started work on the new $150 million justice precinct for the Australian Capital Territory.
Attorney-General Simon Corbell, with Supreme Court Chief Justice Helen Murrell, turned the first sod in April for the historic building project which will deliver a revitalised court precinct in Canberra.
The project will create a combined Law Courts facility for the ACT which will maximise operational efficiencies whilst still respecting the jurisdictional separation between the Supreme Court and the Magistrates Court.
View from the bench
Juris Partnership delivery partner Lyons Architect has created a mock courtroom to allow all of the ACT Law Courts stakeholders to experience what the new $150 million precinct will offer.
Cameron Lyon joined Attorney-General Simon Corbell and Juris Partnership general manager David Lovell on the tour of the mock courtroom, demonstrating how this major infrastructure project will significantly upgrade the current ageing facilities, particularly the ACT Supreme Court.
